Stewart Receives Shanklin Excellence Award


Aug 10, 2015 | Casper College News

Casper College math instructor and math placement coordinator Claudia Stewart was recently recognized with the Shanklin Faculty Leadership Excellence Award.

“If you use a definition of faculty as someone who imparts knowledge, Claudia takes this so much further. She gets to know her students and sees them as people first and students second. Her demeanor is so comfortable that often times, Claudia needs a counselor’s cap as she is such a good listener and her students feel comfortable talking to her,” said Debra Swedberg, math instructor.

The award is named for longtime Casper College emeritus psychology instructor Garth Shanklin. According to Shanklin the award was created to “promote recognition of full-time Casper College teaching faculty who display exceptional commitment to teaching and have made significant collegial contributions to the college.”

This is the second year for the award. The first year the award was presented to Cammy Rowley, early childhood education instructor.
