“The Teaching Excellent Award is always a highlight for the entire ACBSP membership. From the innovators to the experts, or those special leaders going above and beyond, the Teaching Excellence Award allows us to collectively recognize and honor those faculty members making a difference on our campuses and in the lives of our students,” said Deborah Gaspard, Teaching Excellence Committee Chair.

We are happy to see that all ten ACBSP Regions had regional recipients this year for the Teaching Excellence Award in the baccalaureate/graduate degree category. These recipients were also recognized during the Salute to Regions luncheons and called on stage to receive a medallion and a $250 check from Dewayne Thompson, Chair, Board of Directors (2016-17).

A. Dale King, Jefferson-Pilot Professor of Business at Lenoir-Rhyne University, received the 2016 International Teaching Excellence Award for the baccalaureate/graduate degree category. King received a crystal award and a $500 check.

“How humbling to be awarded the Region 3 Teaching Excellence Award, much less the International Teaching Excellence Award. I love my ACBSP friends; the bonds and friendships I have established through the years is a special part and reason I am what I am – a dedicated business faculty member who truly loves her students and their accomplishments and achievements. Any success I have comes from the successes of the students I have taught over an almost four-decade teaching career.” – Dale King
