          York Tech’s Wyatt Recognized as Governor’s Professor of the Year Semifinalist

COLUMBIA—York Technical College Biology Instructor Beth Wyatt was recognized as a semifinalist for the 2013 Governor’s Professor of the Year Award at a luncheon hosted by the SC Higher Education Foundation at the University of South Carolina last week. She was one of only eight university and college faculty members to be recognized as semifinalists.

Wyatt has been described   by her peers as “student focused in the best possible way.” She is straightforward with her students about the demands of the programs they are in and the careers for which they are preparing. She demonstrates care and concern for her students, but also sets high expectations.

For 25 years, the South Carolina Governor’s Professor of the Year program   has honored professors from public and private 2-year and 4-year institutions who have demonstrated exceptional teaching performance, scholarship, and service. Individual honorees represent the best at their respective institutions—individuals who transform the lives and careers of their students. By recognizing and applauding the exemplary accomplishments of faculty throughout the state, the SC Higher Education Foundation encourages their continual pursuit of excellence. In addition, the SC Governor’s Professors of the Year program helps ensure that South Carolina retains its most talented and respected faculty members.
