Two Honored With Alumni Association Outstanding Faculty Award
Two faculty members were honored with the Alumni Association Outstanding Faculty Award for 2008-09 and 2009-10: Dr. Aniko Constantine, SUNY (State University of New York) Distinguished Teaching Professor, English and Humanities, and Jim Boardman, assistant professor and chair, Computer and Information Technology, respectively. Presented by Wren Keber, ’06, alumni board member and chair, Young Alumni Committee, the 2008-09 citation for Constantine noted that Constantine energizes and motivates students to do their best on a daily basis; is always accessible for help, and is willing to lend an ear and give advice. Presented by Joanne Allen, ’55, the citation for Boardman indicated that he brings to class, not only information in the text book, but also relevant material from many other sources. The nomination credited Boardman for bringing a team to the 2010 Northeast Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (NECCDC), an undergraduate student contest which tests each student team’s ability to secure networked computer systems while maintaining standard business functionality, where he coached them, even into the wee hours!
