CHAIRE Co-Director Dr. Kelly George was recently awarded the North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA) Educator Award. The NACTA Educator Award recognizes "individuals whose efforts represent the very best in agricultural higher education." Dr. George was selected for this award based on her nomination by the Department of Animal Sciences, support from current students, alumna, and peer faculty, and a review committee of NACTA members. As described by one of her former students: "Through her teaching, Dr. George demonstrates not only a true passion for her course content, but also a commitment to inspiring and educating a new generation of learners."
In the Department of Animal Sciences, Dr. George currently serves as advisor to several undergraduate and graduate students, as well as teaches a wide variety of coursework. This includes courses on Human Dimensions in Animal Science (ANIMSCI 5000) and Global Food & Agriculture (ANIMSCI 3600), as well as several Global Education opportunities for students to explore animal agriculture industries and relationships with animals outside of the United States.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. George on this receiving this distinguished award!
