Dr. Francisca Oboh-Ikuenobe, professor of geology and geophysics and associate dean for academic affairs in the College of Engineering and Computing became the seventh person selected to win the Medal for Excellence in Education from the AASP – The Palynological Society since the award was launched in 1999.

“I feel honored to be recognized with this medal, as it is a testament to the students I have been privileged to mentor,” says Oboh-Ikuenobe. “This award is really all about my students. It would not have been possible without them.”

Oboh-Ikuenobe was nominated for the honor by her first graduate student at S&T, Dr. Carlos Jaramillo, who came to S&T in 1994 as a master’s student in geology and geophysics.
