Coconino Community College long-time instructor Tom Lehman was awarded the President's Medallion at a Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS) annual conference in May.
HAPS is an academic society of more than 1,600 high school and college educators, authors and researchers in the fields of anatomy and physiology. At the conference, group members created an environment of sharing, learning, and discussed ways to teach students these difficult subjects.
Each year the president of HAPS selects one individual who has shown exemplary service to HAPS and nominates that person to the HAPS Governing Board. This year, CCC's Lehman was rightfully acknowledged for his efforts in this field of teaching. Lehman has been a member of HAPS since 1999 and has served as the Chair of the Steering Committee since 2004.
"It is always a high point of my year to spend a week with 500 close friends at the annual conference, sharing ideas and stories and experiences. I am proud of the work that our Steering Committee has achieved, and I am honored at receiving the President's Medallion in 2011," Lehman said.
CCC staff and students may have heard of Lehman before. In 2009, he was honored as the CCC Faculty of the Year. Great job Mr. Lehman!
