Joshua Williams was recognized in Armstrong's "Above and Beyond Service" campaign. This honor resulted from the testimonial of a student who wrote about the substantial time Dr. Williams spent outside of class helping her understand course material and to succeed in class, often re-arranging his schedule so he could be available to her (and other students)! This recognition is all the more remarkable given that the fall semester was Dr. Williams' first semester teaching as a full-fledged faculty member (anywhere, not just at Armstrong).
Dr. Mirari Elcoro and Dr. Carlos Aparicio were awarded the Savannah State/Armstrong Collaborative Teaching and Research Grant for their proposal entitled: "Dopamine and Impulsivity." The awards committee wrote that they were delighted to award these two faculty members the grant again this year so they could expand their research in behavioral pharmacology and neuroscience and to continue to offer students at both universities opportunities to collaborate in this research. We are delighted by this continued collaboration!
Congratulations to both faculty members!
