Three outstanding faculty members at ASU were recognized at the annual honors convocation on Friday, March 18, at Christenberry Fieldhouse. The top faculty honors, which were presented by President William A. Bloodworth, Jr., included the Outstanding Faculty Member of the Year Award, which was presented to Dr. Walter Evans, professor of English; the Distinguished Service Award, which went to Dr. Raymond Whiting, professor of political science; and the Louis K. Bell Research Award, which was given to Dr. Jurgen Brauer, professor of economics.
The Outstanding Faculty Member of the Year Award recognizes not only outstanding teaching and service to the community, but also the ability to inspire students. Dr. Evans was chosen for the award by a committee of faculty and students.

A Fulbright Scholar, he studied at the Universite de Rouen in France. He earned a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and a master’s degree in English literature, both from the University of Missouri, and a doctoral degree from the University of Chicago.
The Richard S. Wallace Distinguished Service Award recognizes outstanding service to the university and to the community. The award is named in honor of a former president of the university. A lead authority on the right-to-die debate, Dr. Whiting is the author of A Natural Right to Die: Twenty-Three Centuries of Debate. He was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1986 and appointed to the American Arbitration Association Panel of Arbitrators in 1987. Dr. Whiting earned a bachelor’s degree in political philosophy, a master’s degree in civil/criminal concentration, and a doctoral degree in social science, all from Syracuse University.
Dr. Jurgen Brauer was presented the Louis K. Bell Research Award for his outstanding contributions in research, scholarship, and creativity.
