The recipient exemplifies excellence in teaching, civility and concern for students and colleagues. This person also maintains a commitment to value-centered education, and service to students, the institution and the community.“
Justin is the teacher who doesn’t know how to say no when asked to assist,” said DWU Provost Dr. Rocky VonEye. “He not only agrees to help but the job is done in record time. He is dedicated to education, concerned about every student and encourages the students to do their best.”
