Dr. Jeff Howell, Assistant Professor of History at EGSC Statesboro, has been awarded a Governor’s Teaching Fellowship by the University of Georgia (UGA). Dr. Howell will participate in the Fellowship on UGA’s Athens campus from May 16-20 and May 23-27. The Governor's Teaching Fellows Program was established by Zell Miller, Governor of Georgia, from 1991 to 1999, to provide Georgia's higher education faculty with expanded opportunities for developing important teaching skills. The program is offered through the university’s Institute of Higher Education.
According to Dr. Lee Cheek, EGSC’s Dean of the School of Social Sciences, “Dr. Howell is to be congratulated for this excellent recognition--and for his ability to continue to advance his already highly talented classroom abilities. He will now be able to support our emphases in academic achievement and learning at a statewide level.”
