The San Juan College Foundation recently presented the Tarpley Awards to faculty who have shown a commitment to excellence in the classroom, to students and to San Juan College.
Mr. Wayne Tarpley passed away in December 2012, but his generosity and recognition of teaching excellence continues through his trust. The son of a teacher, Mr. Tarpley considered faculty to be part of his extended family and the heart of society.
The award carries a stipend of $1,000 for each full-time faculty member and $800 for each adjunct faculty member. Each spring the San Juan College Foundation will continue to honor Mr. Tarpley’s wishes with gratitude.
This year, 20 full-time and 6 adjunct faculty members received a Tarpley Award.
