Six faculty members from Washington in St. Louis have won Emerson Excellence in Teaching awards. Now in its 29th year, the awards pay tribute to area educators — from kindergarten teachers to college professors — for their achievements and dedication to the field of education. Each honoree receives a Tiffany & Co. crystal apple box, which marks their role in shaping students’ lives.
The Washington University recipients are: Emily Boyd, teaching professor in the School of Engineering & Applied Science; Sung Ho Kim, professor of architecture in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts; Robyn LeBoeuf, associate professor of marketing in Olin Business School; Robert Morgan, teaching professor in the Performing Arts Department in Arts & Sciences; and Corinna Treitel, associate professor of history in Arts & Sciences. Also receiving the honor was Margaret Garb, professor of history, who died in December after a long battle with cancer.
