Awards and Honors
Two graduate students honored for their teaching
The recipients of the 2004 Milam-McGinty-Kaun Award for Distinguished
Teaching were announced by interim Social Sciences Dean Michael
Hutchison at the division's recent annual breakfast meeting.
Ralf Hepp and Alejandra Kramer received the award in recognition
of their outstanding teaching. Hepp is a doctoral candidate
in economics and a three-time recipient of a teaching award
offered to graduate students by the Economics Department. Kramer
is a doctoral candidate in anthropology.
Named after David Kaun, the professor of economics who endowed
the award, and the first recipients, Garrett Milam and Matt
McGinty, the award honors graduate students in the fields of
anthropology, economics, education, environmental studies, politics,
psychology, and sociology. Each year, one recipient from economics
and one student in another field receive $1,000 each.
Kaun established the award in 2000 with a $50,000 gift to the
campus. Milam and McGinty were teaching assistants in Kaun's
Intermediate Microeconomic Theory course
