Members of the University of Wyoming’s senior honor society recently honored their “Top Profs” at the 39th annual Top Prof Night.
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.
“‘Top Prof’ is a great event, as it allows students to recognize the faculty who have had an impact on their lives,” says Christine Wade, an associate professor in the UW Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, and an adviser to the UW chapter. “Faculty are especially honored to be recognized as ‘Top Profs,’ because they are chosen by the students.”
Mortar Board is the premier national honor society recognizing college seniors for outstanding achievement in scholarship, leadership and service. Mortar Board provides opportunities for continued leadership development; promotes service to colleges and universities; and encourages lifelong contributions to the global community. UW chapter members participate in numerous projects and activities throughout the year, both on campus and in the Laramie community.
