University of Dubuque announced on Thursday, April 30, the recipients of the 2020 Faculty Hall of Fame for Excellence in Teaching and Advising.
Ken Turner Jr., associate professor of science education, received the 2020 John Knox Coit Prize. He was an adjunct for a few years at UD before he started as a full-time assistant professor in 2015.
The Rev. Beth McCaw, associate professor of ministry, received the 2020 William Lomax Award. She joined UD in 2004 as a seminary pastor to students. In 2017, McCaw became an associate professor.
Inductees typically are announced, honored, and celebrated at the annual Faculty Hall of Fame dinner and award recognition event. However, this year’s formal event was postponed based off guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds. The 2020 award recipients will be formally honored and recognized next spring at the Faculty Hall of Fame dinner and award recognition event at 6:00 PM, Thursday, April 8, 2021 at the Dubuque Golf and Country Club.
