Dr. Steve Hines to be Presented with the SAVMA Teaching Excellence Award
Each year, the Student AVMA presents two Teaching Excellence Awards (TEAs) to recognize outstanding veterinary faculty members in the areas of basic and clinical sciences. The TEA is a unique award, in that it is one of the few national awards that are entirely student nominated and chosen. WSU juniors, Maci Keithly and Emily Wynne, successfully nominated Dr. Stephen Hines for the 2007 basic sciences award.
The students wrote essay responses to questions such as, "Give examples of methods that this instructor uses to generate enthusiasm for their subject" and "Describe the instructor's use of innovative teaching techniques". Maci and Emily selected Dr. Hines as a candidate through the overwhelming support from their classmates. Many students at WSU have been affected by his love of teaching, exemplary leadership (in and out of the classroom), mentorship, and dedication to make a difference. Many WSU students hope that Dr. Hines has many more years of teaching left in him!! He will be honored in front his colleagues at an awards ceremony at the AVMA Annual Convention in Washington D.C. this summer.
