Dr. Macedone Recognized by the University Accessibility Center

Posted: Mar 04, 2014

Each year, the University Accessibility Center recognizes two faculty members for extraordinary service to BYU students with disabilities. This year, department member Jeffrey H. Macedone and G. Bruce Schaalje of the Statistics Department were selected.

The award winners were honored at the UAC’s Annual Awards Banquet in the Wilkinson Student Center where a donation was made to the college of each recipient to fund student mentoring experiences.

“The entire event was focused on encouraging and assisting students in overcoming their challenges,” Dr. Macedone said. “I’m grateful that there are people external to the university that care about student’s success enough to provide financial support for those with disabilities.”

This annual event was started fourteen years ago by a particular donor and has benefited hundreds of students with disabilities.
