The Talkington Achievement Award recognizes the tradition of teaching excellence as exemplified by the career of H. L. Talkington, who came to Lewiston State Normal School in 1899 and was an outstanding instructor here for 40 years. He was the first school librarian, was active in committee assignments, and wrote dozens of publications on Idaho and Pacific Northwest history.
Eligibility: Regular full-time faculty members who have taught at the college for at least three years.
Criteria: The award specifically stresses excellence in classroom teaching. The record of performance should emphasize the current year.
Procedure: Open nominations to the provost office must include at least three letters of support from colleagues and students. A copy of the fall semester Student Reaction to Instruction results would be helpful. The chair of the faculty will appoint five people to the selection committee and the committee chair will be the past year’s recipient.
