Five Barton instructors earned the Distinguished Instructor Award for the 2019-2020 school year for their efforts in the classroom.
The winners are:
Emily Cowles – BARTonline
Gil Cloud – Fort Riley Campus
Jessica Fullen – Fort Leavenworth Campus
Melissa Stevens – Barton County Campus
Darlene Sabio - Adjunct Faculty
The Distinguished Instructor Award recognizes teaching excellence. Faculty members are nominated by their peers and then evaluated by a committee including Barton students, a previous Distinguished Instructor Award recipient, members of the Barton Foundation, Board of Trustees and community members. The committee considers each instructor’s contributions to teaching and learning, the college mission and the community.
A plaque reflecting the names of the award recipients is displayed in Barton’s Office of Instruction located in the Science Building.
