    Grad students in Physical Sciences awarded for teaching contributions

    Four graduate students in the Physical Science Division have been recognized for their exceptional teaching in the College.

    Daniel Reichart, a student in Astronomy & Astrophysics, has been presented the Sagan Award, and Physical Sciences Teaching Prizes have been awarded to Guixing Hu of Geophysical Sciences, Melita Morton of Chemistry and Kenneth Saldanha of Mathematics. The winners will each receive $500.

    The Sagan Award, named for scientist, teacher, author and University alumnus Carl Sagan (A.B.'54, S.B.'55, S.M.'56, Ph.D.'60), is awarded to the Astronomy & Astrophysics graduate student who demonstrates an exceptional level of commitment to teaching. The recipients are chosen on recommendation of faculty who teach the undergraduate core courses, and of students in the classes.

    The Physical Sciences Teaching Prizes are presented to graduate students in any department of the Physical Sciences Division who exemplify excellence in teaching. Nominations for the award are submitted by students and faculty members.
