Each year, Southeastern President John L. Crain bestows the university's most prestigious honor, the President's Award for Excellence, to faculty and staff excelling in the areas of research, teaching, artistic activity, faculty service and staff service. Meet this year's recipients.
“What particularly stands out for me is David’s accomplished and beautiful language, which like all great style is readily recognizable but not easily explainable.” -- David C. Hanson, Professor and Head, Department of English
“Dr. Gonzalez-Perez is a particularly worthy candidate for the Excellence Award for Research not only for the high quality and substantial quantity of her scholarship, but also because she published on the very important and timely subject of international terrorism.” -- William Robison, Head, Department of History and Political Science
"Dr. Schulte is eccentric, passionate, brilliant, experienced and authentic in her character as a person and an educator. She has impacted my life and I guarantee I am part of a long list of teachers who have testimony after testimony of her contribution to their craft as an educator.” -- Misty McCarthy, Former Student
"Service has been at the heart of her professional career from the day she was employed at Southeastern. She is the first to volunteer to serve on an important committee to advance the mission of the university or to support retention efforts in our department.” -- Cindy Elliott, Professor, Department of Education
“Our virtues are charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. “Mr. Whitmer has shown these qualities to the full extent. He always takes pride in whatever he is asked to do.” -- John Catalanotte, Financial Secretary, Our Lady of Pompeii Council
