Heaney and Bice honored at Wilson Banquet


It was another great night for the Department at the Wilson Banquet. 


Professor Peter Heaney won the Wilson Award for Excellence in Teaching.  I can’t tell you how well deserved this award is for Peter.   He is an unbelievably talented and dedicated teacher who gets rave reviews from graduate and undergraduate students.  Peter can make the toughest concept easy to follow and the dullest mineral fascinating (well, no mineral is dull to Peter, but...).


Professor Dave Bice won the G. Montgomery and Marion Hall Mitchell Award for Innovation in Teaching.  Dave is well known nationally for his creative efforts to use STELLA modeling in hands-on learning modules in earth systems science curricula.  This award is very well deserved and the results of Dave's hard work will soon be widely displayed in on-line courses.
