Bob Horton, professor of secondary mathematics education in the Eugene T. Moore School of Education has been awarded the Clemson University Thomas Green Clemson Award for Excellence.
Established by the Office of the Provost in 1999, this award honors outstanding faculty and staff who have made significant contributions to academic life at Clemson.
Including his duties as a professor, Horton is also the president of the South Carolina Association of Math Teacher Educators. He also sits on the editorial board of Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education magazine.
The Thomas Green Clemson Award for Excellence includes $5,000 to be evenly divided between the recipient and the Clemson University Libraries. Recipients of the award also receive a plaque, and their names are added to the perpetual Thomas Green Clemson Award for Excellence plaque, which is on permanent display in the lobby of the R.M. Cooper Library.
The monies donated to the Libraries will be used to purchase new materials to be added to the Libraries' collection, and these purchases will include a personalized donor plate honoring the award recipient.
Horton was presented with his award during the close-of-fall-semester faculty meeting in December. Sandy Edge, director of the College of Business and Behavioral Science Academic Advising Center was also presented with the same award.
