To celebrate excellence in the classroom and contributions toward student service, four Missouri S&T faculty members are being honored by the College of Engineering and Computing with the title of Dean’s Educator Scholar. They were surprised while teaching classes. Check out videos of the surprise classroom visits on the college’s Facebook page.

The honorees are:

  • Dr. F. Scott Miller, teaching professor of metallurgical engineering and associate chair for undergraduate programs in materials sciences and engineering
  • Dr. Theresa Swift, associate teaching professor of electrical and computer engineering
  • Dr. Hank Pernicka, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering
  • Dr. Joe Stanley, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering

The new award honors tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty nominated by their department chairs and selected by a five-person CEC committee of senior professors from the college’s nine departments. It follows the fall designation of six CEC dean’s scholars, who were cited for their research accomplishments, teaching excellence and campus service.

The two-year title includes a $5,000 stipend. In addition to receiving the news in surprise classroom visits in March, the winners were and were later recognized at a ceremony at Hasselmann Alumni House.
