Prof. Paul Miller, co-adviser of the Knightly News Media Club at Central Penn College, received the college’s Faculty Member of the Quarter Award for the spring term (second quarter) last month.
The award recognizes “positive attitude toward work responsibilities, co-workers, students, and customers, and your willingness to take initiative for the good of the campus community,” according to the college’s description.
The award was Miller’s first at Central Penn.
“I had no idea that I’d even been nominated and found out in a Humanities and Sciences department meeting that I had won,” Miller said. “It is one of the highest honors a Central Penn College faculty (member) can achieve. I am truly honored that my department values me and my efforts.”
Candidates for the award are nominated by peers.
An excerpt of Miller’s nomination said, “Paul works tirelessly to help and aid students, advise the Knightly News Media Club, and build up the reputation and resources of the College. He bleeds Central Penn maroon and orange. I can think of no one more deserving of this award.”
Miller said receiving the award means a lot to him, professionally and personally.
“This, without a doubt, is the finest moment of my career,” he said. “Personally, the fact that I have the opportunity to spend my career with Central Penn College is amazing. It really means the world to me to have such supportive and caring colleagues that I get to work with every day.”
