Sherrerd Awards Honor
Four Smith Professors
Four Smith College faculty members will be recognized
for their talent as educators at a presentation on Tuesday, October 17, at 4:30 p.m.
in Sweeney Concert Hall, Sage Hall. Previously awarded during the spring semester,
the Kathleen Compton Sherrerd ’54 and John J. F. Sherrerd Prizes for Distinguished
Teaching will now be presented in the fall.
Justin Cammy, assistant professor of Jewish studies;
John Hellweg, professor of theater; Samuel Intrator, associate professor of education
and child study; and Kevin Shea, assistant professor of chemistry, were selected
to receive the fourth round of Sherrerd Awards. These prizes are given annually to
four Smith faculty members in recognition of their distinguished teaching records
and demonstrated enthusiasm and excellence.
The Sherrerd Teaching Award was made possible by a
grant to the college from the late Smith College alumna Kathleen Compton Sherrerd
and her husband John J. F. Sherrerd.
“Smith has always considered excellent teaching
among its top priorities and presents the Sherrerd Teaching Award as a public symbol
of its commitment and dedication to superior pedagogy,” said Smith President
Carol T. Christ, in announcing the recipients.
