UW Bothell's 1999 Distinguished Teacher named

   The University of Washington, Bothell, announced that Dr. Kevin Laverty, assistant professor of business administration, would receive the UWB's 1999 Distinguished Teaching Award. A committee composed of faculty, students, and alumni recommended Dr. Laverty for this special recognition. One student of Dr. Laverty's wrote, "I find that the challenge he puts forth to his students is one of attaining real knowledge. The ultimate goal seems to be to communicate to students the importance of developing the ability to acknowledge differing opinions and concepts and then formulate one's own interpretation."
