We are pleased to announce that Jim Maynard has been selected to receive the 2008-2009 James W. Taylor Award for Excellence in Teaching. The Taylor Award was endowed through the generosity and efforts of our own Professor Jim Taylor and the Pharmacia Corp.

Please join us in congratulating Jim for this Award!!
