Two biology faculty selected for University Mentor Award

Recipients of this year's Ashland University Academic Mentor Award were recently announced, and the list contains two members of the Department of Biology/Toxicology.  This award is given to faculty, administrators and staff after recommendation by an Ashland student.
Dr. Dick Stoffer

Dr. Steve Fenster
Dr. Dick Stoffer was nominated by senior environmental science major Mary Cargill, who writes that "As an adviser, professor and friend, Dr. Stoffer has been a large part of my academic success because he's always willing to help me in anyway he can.  With all his knowledge and experiences, he is an excellent resource to have in terms of guidance and also an exceptionally kind man who wants nothing but the best for his students."

Senior biology major Charlie Davis nominated Dr. Steve Fenster for this year's award, writing that he "has been a positive influence on my academic and personal growth here at AU, along with contributing to my graduate school admission process. Dr. Fenster is a great professor inside and outside the classroom, which is why he deserved the Mentor Award."

This is Dr. Stoffer's second Academic Mentor Award, which has also been given previously to Biology faculty Andrew Greene and Mason Posner.
