Graduate teaching assistants honored by Seven Society

Dona Yarbrough of the English Department was recently awarded the Seven Society Graduate Fellowship for Superb Teaching. The $7,000 award recognizes a graduate teaching assistant who embodies the highest ideals of teaching at the University: dedication to students, substantial knowledge of the subject matter and skill in conveying passion for that knowledge.

Another award, the 2000 Dr. Frank Finger Graduate Fellowship, also was announced last month at the fourth annual Seven Society Awards Banquet. Funded by a gift of J. Huston McCollough II in honor of Dr. Frank Finger, Alumni Professor of Psychology Emeritus, this fellowship for $4,000 is awarded each year to an Arts & Sciences graduate teaching assistant in recognition of stimulating and organized classroom teaching. Supriya Jaiswal of the physics department was this yearıs winner.

In all, 12 graduate teaching assistants, nominated by former students, were honored at the Rotunda during the banquet.
