Dr. Jeff Jackson was selected as this year’s winner of the Cora Lee Graham Award for Outstanding Teaching of Freshmen. The annual award is given to university faculty who consistently integrate excellence in class instruction, concern for students’ welfare, and intellectual stimulation of students into their teaching. The award was established in 1984 through an endowment from Cora Lee Graham of Union City, Tennessee. According to the Liberal Arts website, Graham asked that the proceeds from her gift be used to “to help retain your better professors who teach the freshman classes” in the College of Liberal Arts. For more information, see the July issue of “View from Ventress,” a publication of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Mississippi. Congratulations, Jeff!
