The Excellence in Teaching Award at the Pittsburg State University College of Technology is an individual accolade, but this year’s winner believes many people deserve to share the honor.
“My experiences over the last four years, working with many other colleagues in numerous departments within the College of Technology, strengthens my belief that we all deserve and share in this honor,” said Chris Huitt, assistant professor in the Graphics and Imaging Technologies Department.
Huitt, who specializes in print media, received the award on April 12 during the College of Technology’s annual banquet.
Huitt has been at PSU since 2007. He taught as an adjunct for two years before becoming a full-time GIT faculty member.
The Excellence in Teaching Award recipients are selected by the COT faculty.
“I was very honored to receive the 2013 College of Technology Excellence in Teaching Award,” he said. “This fortunate opportunity was made possible by other faculty that took the time to encourage, instruct, mentor, and extend a helping hand to me, throughout my educational experience and teaching career here at Pittsburg State University.”
