Charlene Spiceland Wins Briggs Teaching Award

For release:  February 23, 2011

Charlene Spiceland, instructor in the School of Accountancy, has won a Thomas W. Briggs Foundation Excellence in Teaching Award. This is a highly prestigious award that was established by the Thomas W. Briggs Foundation to recognize outstanding educators for their positive impact on undergraduate teaching.

In supporting Charlene’s application, Director of the School of Accountancy Professor Carolyn Callahan stated, “Charlene has a natural gift for teaching based on her innate compassion for her students, her willingness to meet students’ needs and her focus on excellence in class room delivery. On the personal side, she is a very supportive colleague with a great sense of humor, a team player with a strong work ethic. Her optimism and positive attitude is contagious in the School of Accountancy.”

As an outstanding teacher, Charlene’s recognition is very well deserved, and, following Irv Tankersley’s success, is the second Briggs award to come to the School of Accountancy in two years.
