Dr. Benson receives University’s Ingalls Award
Dr. Amanda K. Andrews Benson, chair of the Department of Athletic Training, is the recipient of the 2011 Ingalls Award for Excellence in Classroom Teaching at Troy University.
Dr. Benson received the award during the University’s annual Honors Convocation in April on the Troy Campus.
The Ingalls Award is given annually to the teacher on the Troy Campus who has “most diligently, effectively and cheerfully conducted his or her classes during the current academic year.”
Students nominate faculty members for the award, and a committee of students and faculty advisers selects the recipient. The award consists of a statue of Socrates, a plaque and a check for $1,000.
