The National Society of Leadership and Success, Sigma Alpha Pi chapter at Augusta University, recently honored Dr. Drew Kemp, professor of education, with the Excellence in Teaching Award.
The award is given to individuals who teach with passion and inspire students beyond the classroom; demonstrate dedication to developing students beyond academic qualifications; or who make a positive difference in the lives of society members.
“Dr. Kemp has demonstrated a unique perspective to the students by dedicating himself to inspire students to become creative and think outside the classroom standards,” said Jahin Roknuzzaman, a student in Kemp’s classes who nominated him for the award. “His efforts and influence is appreciated by the National Society of Leadership and Success, a society that tries to build leaders through motivating personal accomplishment.”
Kemp said that he was honored to receive the award, because his focus is on student learning.
“The ability to communicate ideas is essential to being a successful student and a successful educator,” he said. “Being recognized by students is particularly gratifying.”
