On the evening of April 26, 2012, WKU presented Faculty Awards at a dinner in the Regents Room on South Campus. Among the faculty members honored at the presentation were two from the Libraries. They were Nancy Richey who received the Faculty Award for Research/Creativity and Haiwang Yuan who received the Faculty Award for Public Services. Provost Dr. Gordon Emslie presided over the presentation, President Gary Ransdell gave a speech congratulating the award recipients and thanking them for their work.
The WKU Forensic Team highlighted the award presentation with their spectacular performances.
New to this year’s Faculty Award ceremony was the gift of an engraved clock to each recipient in addition to the usual certificate.
