Carolyn Mathews and Hilary Lips, professors in Radford University’s College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences, are the recipients of the highest honor given by the college to its faculty.
Mathews, an English professor, and Lips, chair of the Department of Psychology and a professor in that department, are winners of CHBS’s Distinguished Teaching Award and Distinguished Scholarship Award, respectively. The two professors were nominated and selected by a committee of their peers. Each received a plaque and $500 in professional development funding.
Mathews teaches English education courses, including grammar, language and writing, that prepare future secondary teachers for careers in the classroom. She also supervises teacher candidates in their early field experience and student teaching.
