Wendy Miner, professor of education, was nominated for the Teaching Excellence in First-Year Seminars Award by members of Truman’s Symposium and Self and Society committees. The award, overseen by The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience, along with Penguin Random House Publishing, recognizes one exceptional teacher at the Annual Conference on the First-Year Experience. In the nomination letter, Miner was praised for “a boundless passion for teaching” and inspiring her students through hands-on, experiential learning. This fall, Miner’s symposium class, TRU 100: EXPLORE, aims to help students have fun and learn about the Kirksville community through civic engagement.
