AFS grad student Elizabeth Domby tapped for NACTA Teaching Award
Texas Tech graduate student Elizabeth Domby has been selected to receive a ‘Graduate Student Teaching Award’ from the North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture. The honor will be presented to the Department of Animal and Food Sciences doctoral student at the organization’s annual conference on June 25-29 at Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, Va.
“Liz has been instrumental in helping teach labs for feeds and feeding,” said Sara Trojan, a visiting assistant professor in Texas Tech’s Department of Animal and Food Sciences. “She’s a caring and effective instructor, and we appreciate her dedication to teaching.”
One of the group’s central purposes is to recognize those individuals whose efforts represent the very best in agricultural higher education, said Nick Fuhrman, chairman of the Teacher Recognition Committee. As an organization it seeks to inspire achievement at the highest levels of excellence. It will present more than 50 awards at the summer ceremony, including 20 graduate student awards, 28 teacher fellow awards, and three regional awards.
According to program officials, North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture is a professional society that focuses on the scholarship of teaching and learning agriculture and related disciplines at the postsecondary level. Members are from two-year and four-year colleges, public and private.
