Zwikstra receives Washburn University achieving excellence award

Washburn University has awarded the Student Life Achieving Excellence Award to Corey Zwikstra, assistant professor, English. The nominator stated that Zwikstra “is genuinely interested in student reactions to material, welcomes interruptions that provide insightful information, and is willing to provide students additional assistance any time… Washburn is lucky to have him.”

The Student Life Achieving Excellence Award is presented monthly to the faculty, staff or community leader who has been nominated, and who demonstrates excellence in working with individual students, student groups or organizations. This award is a way to recognize individuals who most exemplify these principles based on everyday behaviors or special isolated events and activities that make Washburn a special place for students to learn and excel.
