Outstanding Educator Awards

By Steven Geller

Three Normandale faculty members were designated 2014 Board of Trustees Outstanding Educators by President Joe Opatz.

Communications instructor Aimee Dubois, economics instructor Anne-Marie Ryan-Guest and theatre instructor Kurt Schweickhardt were all recognized for their outstanding teaching and exemplary service to students.

The Board of Trustees award is bestowed upon Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system faculty members to acknowledge and reward exceptional professional accomplishments, and to encourage ongoing excellence in teaching. It recognizes superior teaching at the MnSCU colleges and universities and proclaims, on behalf of the entire system, the Board of Trustees' pride in dedication and accomplishment of our faculty in providing instruction that prepares Minnesota's colleges and university students for professional, scholarly and civic lives.
