Four from the College and Agriculture and Natural Resources were honored as “Top Profs” by members of the University of Wyoming’s senior honor society.
Members of the Cap and Gown Chapter of Mortar Board selected professors who have positively influenced their lives at UW. These professors go beyond normal classroom expectations to help their students succeed.
Listed are UW Mortar Board students and their hometowns, along with their Top Profs and the professors’ disciplines:
Laramie – Mary Freeman, Donal O’Toole, veterinary sciences
Rock Springs – Katie Jacobs, Kristin McTigue, family and consumer sciences
Sheridan – Lachlan Brennan, Peter Thorsness, molecular biology
Story – Mendi Maes, Rachel Watson, molecular biology
“‘Top Prof’ is a great event, as it allows students to recognize the faculty who have had an impact on their lives,” says Christine Wade, an associate professor in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, and an adviser to the UW chapter. “Faculty are especially honored to be recognized as ‘Top Profs’ because they are chosen by the students.”
