Nominated faculty to receive Golden Apple awards

Associated Students of Boise State University (ASBSU) will honor exceptional faculty members with an annual award ceremony.

The Golden Apple Award is a way for students to thank teachers who pushed them further, put in extra time and instilled a passion for learning.

The award ceremony will be held Monday, March 10 in the Stueckle Sky Center from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.

Once a year students are given the opportunity to thank faculty who make learning and succeeding at Boise State possible.

Every year, day after day, students wake up, trudge to class, grab some coffee and settle in for another lecture or lab.

Students nominated teachers for the award to be presented by ASBSU.

The awards are given to teachers from the six colleges of study, as long as at least one teacher from that college has been nominated.

Individuals previously awarded the Golden Apple are not eligible for the award.

Teachers in the running for the award are determined by number of nominations.

The event is free but RSVPs are required as seats are limited. Students are invited to attend this event and can make reservations online.
