    Dave McNear was recently named a 2020 UK Great Teacher. This student-nominated award is bestowed by the UK Alumni Association and is the oldest, continuously presented award recognizing teaching at UK. Six awards are given per year. Rebecca McGrail nominated Dave for the award. The committee (and Dave’s wife and twins) surprised him in class on December 12 with the news, and Associate Dean Agouridis’s office coordinated cake and a celebration afterwards. It is a pleasure to see Dave publicly recognized for his years of effort dedicated to instruction here at UK.

    If you had told Stuart Lichtenberg in 2002 that he would eventually graduate from the University of Kentucky with both a bachelor’s degree and a Ph.D., he probably wouldn’t have believed you. Lichtenberg, an IPSS student in Jason Unrine's program, will graduate December 20.
