Golden Apple Award for outstanding teaching (nominated by students)
Of the 31 awards given last night, UNT won 15 of them and a total prize of $7,875 in awards and scholarships. You all should be as incredibly proud of yourselves and your program as we, the faculty, are proud of you.
Best School went to the Miami Ad School, by the way. (This award is not made based on the number of submissions, but on the overall quality of all the work submitted by any given school.)
You are a great group of students and we feel luck to be teaching you.
Eric, Michael, Keith, Karen, Michele, Alex, Jacob and Bill
