Love Heather & David Oct 2015 couple ___________________________________________ Prof Ball: each Fall, we ask students to nominate faculty for one of several HHS teaching awards. Most students include a brief statement describing why they are making their nomination. This Fall, you were nominated for your teaching in CTR 423. Unfortunately, only full-time faculty can be considered for these HHS awards, but, I think it is important to pass the comments students make about faculty along. It's always nice to feel appreciated! So, congratulations! Below, I've pasted the comments made by your nominator: Ms. Ball goes above and beyond for her students. She made the class very fun and extremely informative. She really cares about her students and works with them individually if they need it. She is and excellent example of an event planner! ~Honored to be nominated even as a part-time professor
