||My excellence award is one of the highlighs of my career which spans about 40 years. My thanks to all who nominated and selected me.
I thank all my students because it takes two factors for me to receive this award. Great students make excellent teachers. Kind of like the best athletic coaches always seem to have the best athletes. Both team up and contribute to the fantastic outcome.
I thank my family of Kristina, Lucas and Marah for tolerating the many hours that it takes to be excellent. Forever, I hope I am and remain excellent for and to them.
