Dan Hollis, an associate professor of journalism and mass communications at Marshall University, has been selected as the 2012 Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching West Virginia Professor of the Year.
Hollis was selected from nearly 300 top professors in the United States, according to a university news release.
The selection was announced today during an awards luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Hollis, who in addition to teaching is serving as interim assistant dean of the W. Page Pitt School of Journalism and Mass Communications, was on hand to receive his award.
“Obviously, it’s a great honor,” Hollis said. “I love teaching, being in the classroom and interacting with students. It’s my life. Anytime you get recognized for doing something you love, it’s a bonus.”
The recipient of the Marshall & Shirley Reynolds Outstanding Teacher Award at Marshall University is annually nominated for the Carnegie award. Hollis received the 2011 Reynolds award.
Three other Marshall professors have won the Carnegie award: Dr. Karen Mitchell, a mathematics professor, in 1995; Dr. John McKernan, an English professor, in 2000; and Dr. Steven Mewaldt, a psychology professor, in 2003.
