Members of the University of Wyoming’s senior honor society recently honored their “Top Profs” at the 41st annual Top Prof Night, which was a virtual celebration this year.
Members of the Cap and Gown Chapter of Mortar Board selected professors who have positively influenced their lives at UW. These professors go beyond normal classroom expectations to help their students succeed.
“It is such an honor for faculty members to be nominated by their students, and Mortar Board members really appreciate the opportunity to recognize the faculty who have helped shape them,” says Christine Wade, head of the UW Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, and an adviser to the UW chapter.
