Congratulations to George Christian for winning the Chad Oliver Plan II Teaching Award!

The Plan II Honors Program created the annual Chad Oliver Award to show their appreciation for one outstanding faculty member. This honor, decided and presented by the student body, has recognized one outstanding professor each year for his or her excellence in teaching and dedication to Plan II. Dr. Christian describes what this honor means to him: "The Plan II Teaching Award is really special to me because as a Plan II alum, the World Lit course I took from Wayne Rebhorn made an enormous impact on me. It's pretty cool to have the opportunity to teach that course all these years later!" In fact, Wayne Rebhorn won this same award just last year! Thank you both for your years of inspriational teaching.
