“I am very pleased to receive this award,” said Johnstone. “For me it represents an endorsement of my attempts to be effective by the colleagues I work with on a daily basis. I am aware that many of them would be more worthy recipients than I.”
The $3,000 award was established to recognize annually two full‑time, tenured/tenure‑track faculty members for a record of teaching excellence at the University of North Texas over at least a five-year period. Johnstone will be recognized at the Salute to Faculty Excellence Dinner and Ceremony in the fall semester of 2017.
