Professor Honored for Job Well Done

WSU's second annual "Last Lecture" will be taught by assistant professor of teacher education Paul Pitts on April 14 in the Lindquist Lecture Hall.

The "Last Lecture" honor is given to a WSU professor who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help students achieve academic success and prepare for future careers.

 "I put a lot of myself into my teaching, and to have a student take the time to nominate me for this honor means a lot." Pitts said.

The presentation will explore how everyone is a teacher and why that endeavor should be celebrated whether it's done in a classroom or more informally. Pitts said he planned on using the lecture on the last day of class this semester, regardless of whether he won the award.

The lecture begins at 7 p.m. in the Kimball Visual Arts Center's Lindquist Lecture Hall (Room 120). A reception will be held prior to the lecture. Both events are open to the public.
