I found out on Friday and it became official yesterday – I WON!!! The associate dean came to my office on Friday and informed me that the committee was very impressed with the innovation I’d implemented in our department and the document I wrote. Therefore, they awarded me the Innovation Award for the College of Education.
I’m honored and thrilled to have been recognized with this award. It is wonderful that my hard work over the last year is being recognized. I’ll be getting a clock and $1000 which is going to bills, self-publishing some of my work, and a netbook for me.
There will be an award ceremony on December 15 to give out the awards. I am a bit nervous about being in front of whoever comes to it. However, Ken, Vicki, mom, Beth, and a few other friends will be there.
