Basolo picks 'Top Prof' at UW
Dec 27, 2013 - From staff reports
Members of the University of Wyoming Cap and Gown Chapter of Mortar Board have named their "Top Profs" for the academic year.
Mortar Board student Natalie Basolo, of Lander, selected music professor Brad Williamson as her "Top Prof."
All members of the senior honor society selected professors who have had a positive influence on their lives at UW. These professors go beyond normal classroom expectations to help their students succeed, both in college and later in their careers.
"Being selected as a 'Top Prof' is a great honor for professors because they are chosen by the students," says College of Engineering and applied science professor David Whitman, one of Mortar Board's advisers.
Selection as a member of Mortar Board is one of the highest honors that a UW senior can achieve. Mortar Board recognizes students who have excelled in and out of the classroom, based on scholarship, leadership and service. Mortar Board members participate in many projects and activities throughout the year, both on campus and in the Laramie community.
