Charlene Spiceland Wins Briggs Teaching Award
For release: February 23, 2011
Charlene Spiceland, instructor in the School of Accountancy, has won a Thomas W. Briggs
Foundation Excellence in Teaching Award. This is a highly prestigious award that was established by the Thomas W. Briggs Foundation to recognize outstanding educators
for their positive impact on undergraduate teaching.
In supporting Charlene’s application, Director of the School of Accountancy Professor Carolyn Callahan
stated, “Charlene has a natural gift for teaching based on her innate compassion for
her students, her willingness to meet students’ needs and her focus on excellence
in class room delivery. On the personal side, she is a very supportive colleague with
a great sense of humor, a team player with a strong work ethic. Her optimism and positive
attitude is contagious in the School of Accountancy.”
As an outstanding teacher, Charlene’s recognition is very well deserved, and, following
Irv Tankersley’s success, is the second Briggs award to come to the School of Accountancy
in two years.
