ENMU briefs — May 19

ENMU graduate honored

At its 2010 spring commencement, one of Davidson College’s Hunter-Hamilton Love of Teaching Awards — the college’s top teaching honor — went to Associate Professor of Chemistry Durwin R. Striplin. Each award includes $7,500 for the recipient, and $7,500 more for the recipient to designate to a college cause.

Striplin is a summa cum laude graduate of Eastern New Mexico University who earned his Ph.D. at Washington State University.

Current and former students who nominated him for the honor praised his ability to help students achieve and patience in helping them in the classroom and his office. One stated, “With him, I learned more than I ever had in such a small amount of time … and however hard I was working, I knew he was working harder.”
