Posted: Feb 03, 2012

John Lamb, Robert Paxman and Kim Christensen were recently recognized for their excellent work and service at the annual CPMS banquet on Thursday, January 19.

Scott Sommerfeldt, the dean of the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, announced fourteen recipients of different awards for service, citizenship and teaching.

Dr. Lamb was awarded the Outstanding Teaching Award (10+ years). Sommerfeldt called special attention to his application of software tools and focus on student interaction.

“John is a model of life-long learning and broad interests,” Sommerfeldt was quoted in a CPMS news release as saying. “This is amply evident in his teaching and student interactions.”

Robert Paxman and Kim Christensen received 10-year and 5-year University Service Awards, respectively. Paxman is invaluable as a Computer Support Representative (CSR) while Christensen’s contributions as business manager for the department are equally important. Christensen received an Outstanding Staff/Administrative Employee Award at last year’s banquet.
