June 19, 2017 - Four King’s College faculty members received awards announced during the weekend of the 68th annual Commencement exercises.

Dr. Joan Blewitt, associate professor of business administration, was named to the PNC Distinguished Service Professorship. 

Dr. Jennifer McClinton-Temple, professor and chair of the English department, was named to the Herve LeBlanc Distinguished Professorship.

Distinguished Service Professorships honor faculty who, because of their dedication to teaching and commitment to learning, serve as exemplary professors to their students.

Dr. Marc Marchese, professor of human resources management and the John Davis Distinguished Service Professor, received the Max and Tillie Rosenn Award for Faculty.  The award, established in 1998 by the Honorable Max Rosenn, Senior Circuit Judge of the Third District Federal Court, is given annually to a faculty member who is recognized as an outstanding teacher.  The award is given to a full-time faculty member with a minimum of 10 years of teaching at King’s.

Dr. Scott Weiland, assistant professor and chair of the communications department, received the Rev. Donald Grimes, C.S.C., Annual Award for Service-Learning Teaching Excellence.  The award recognizes a faculty member who has exhibited distinction in integrating service and learning in courses at King’s and who has combined service and learning in a way that especially aids students’ learning; that causes students to reflect critically on the service work they have done; that empowers and energizes students to do further and informed work in the community; and that meets a real community need.
