The WVU Foundation award is a big deal, in case you didn't know, and, as a former member of the selection committee, I can tell you that the shocking thing that happens is that FACULTY FROM ENGINEERING AND THE MEDICAL SCHOOL and, yes, THE CAC choose the winners in Arts and Sciences. I know! That means, like, what someone does in English has to make sense on the other side of campus!
But of course Dr. Ballentine had nooo problem with this little task, and he is more than deserving of this honor, which is his third---yes, really, count 'em---teaching award this year. First the Eberly OT award, then the much-coveted Beagle, and now the Foundation award. Congratulations, Dr. Ballentine! We're duly impressed.
