Cameron University’s Dr. Jenel Cavazos, assistant professor of psychology, and Monika Linehan, associate professor of art, have been selected as the 2013 recipients of the Harold and Elizabeth Hackler Teaching Excellence Award. The Hackler Lectureship in Teaching Excellence was established in 1996 by Cameron alumni Harold and Elizabeth Hackler to recognize outstanding contributions by faculty in the lives of Cameron students.
Dr. Cavazos was nominated for the honor by Hannah Smart, a communications major who is minoring in psychology. Jacob Jardel introduced Dr. Cavazos and spoke of the influence she has had on his education.
Through the endowment, Cavazos and Linehan will each receive a stipend and a grant for professional development. Their names will be added to the Hackler Award honor roll plaque that is on display at the CU-Duncan campus.
