Adam Ahlers Wins NACTA Graduate Student Award
Congratulations to Dr. Adam Ahlers, former PhD student in NRES, who has been awarded the 2015 NACTA Graduate Student Teaching Award!
The purpose of the NACTA Graduate Student Teaching Award is to recognize and reward graduate students who excel as teachers in the agricultural disciplines. The award is for NACTA graduate student members who are involved in classroom instruction. The NACTA Graduate Student Teaching Award is a criterion-based award and is reviewed by a committee of NACTA members. To qualify for the award, a graduate student must have been involved in classroom teaching for a minimum of one year. Consideration is given to the graduate student's teaching philosophy, statement of support from supervising faculty, evaluations submitted by students and administration, a self-evaluation, involvement in teaching outside the classroom, and a description of the candidate's specific teaching involvement.
Adam was co-advised by Drs. Robert Schooley and Edward Heske. He has accepted a position as Assistant Professor in the Department of Horticulture, Forestry and Recreation Resources at Kansas State University beginning Fall 2015.
