Dr. Sherry Kasper, professor of biology, has been selected as the winner of Lee University’s 2024 Excellence in Teaching Award.

The Excellence Awards are the highest honors presented to Lee faculty members and recognize advising, scholarship, and teaching. The Excellence in Teaching is the oldest award and considered to be superior among the three.   

“It is a great honor to receive this award,” said Dr. Kasper. “Over the past 17 years I have witnessed the talent of this faculty and am thankful to be counted among them.” 

Dr. Kasper joined Lee’s Department of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (currently Department of Natural Sciences) in 2007and teaches courses such as Principles of Biology II and Anatomy & Physiology. 

She is the principal investigator for iMASS (integrated Mathematics and Science Scholars), a program funded by a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), which seeks to increase STEM-related career development and partnerships with local STEM industry. She also participates in the department’s cross-cultural trip to Huehuetenango, Guatemala, where students help provide medical care under the mentorship of doctors, nurses, and dentists.

Dr. Kasper is married to Daniel, and they have three sons and one daughter: Luke, Eli, Michael and Kara. 

The winner of the Excellence in Teaching Award is chosen by a special committee, which includes representatives of six different academic departments. Dr. Kasper was officially recognized for this honor during the university’s spring commencement.
