Congratulations to our Entrepreneur in Residence and Associate Professor in Art, Mk Haley, for her Transformation Through Teaching Award for going above and beyond to help her students!
The Transformation Through Teaching award honors faculty members who made a truly impactful difference in a student’s life. Honorees were nominated by students and were celebrated at a ceremony at the President’s house on November 16, 2015.
Mk Haley was selected by Mari Kyle for helping for prepare for her career, not just an exam.
“Having Haley on my committee throughout my Honors in the Major Program has been infinitely helpful in the pursuit of my career goals. Her guidance and advice has made me more precise and orientated. I can’t wait to begin work in the world that Haley has introduced to me, for I know that any academic or professional aspect she brings into my life is monumentally valuable and harnesses the potential to be life-altering.”
— Mari Kyle
The Transformation Through Teaching program was established by the Spiritual Life Project, which encourages professors to not only develop the students intellectually, but also help them find their purpose in life and encourage their dreams outside the classroom.
“It’s clear that these professors have made a difference in the academic lives of their students,” President John Thrasher said. “More than that, though, the impact of these professors will last a lifetime.”
At the dinner, students shared their incredible stories about the award winners in order to inspire other educators to do the same for their students.
