On behalf of Student Council and both selection committees, I would like to announce the recipients of the Leonard W. Sandridge Student Partnership Award and the Distinguished Teaching Award for the 2010-2011 academic year. Both awards will be formally presented at the April 4th annual Council transition ceremony in the Dome Room of the Rotunda.
Leonard W. Sandridge Student Partnership Award Recipient: Andrew Broaddus, Assistant Director of Public Service for the Law School
In 1979, Leonard Sandridge addressed the Student Council for the first time to discuss a decision by the Board of Visitors regarding student fees. Since this appearance, Mr. Sandridge annually addresses the Council to discuss the current state of the University and to answer questions from student representatives. This fall, Mr. Sandridge spoke before this body for the last time before his spring retirement.
In recognition of Mr. Sandridge’s lasting impact on the community and his strong commitment to building unified efforts with the student body, this annual award was established. This award will be given annually to recognize a member of the University administration who makes a positive and lasting impact on the university through: dedication to developing relationships and partnerships with students and/or student organizations.
Distinguished Teaching Award Recipient: Professor Vigen Guroian, Department of Religious Studies, College of Arts & Sciences
This award is given annually to recognize a teacher who makes a positive and lasting impact on the university through: dedication to developing relationships with students and the creation of an engaging and challenging classroom atmosphere.
Congratulations to both recipients.
