Thursday, May 1, 2014

Dakota Wesleyan University recognized one of its professors with the Exemplary Teacher Award Sunday during its Honors Convocation.

Justin Zajic, assistant professor of education at DWU, was the recipient of this year’s Exemplary Teacher Award.

The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of the United Methodist Church, through the Division of Higher Education in partnership with United Methodist-related institutions, expresses support and appreciation for outstanding teaching. 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.”
