TEETER RECEIVES TEACHING AWARD IN AU SCHOOL OF FORESTRY

AUBURN -- Larry Teeter, associate professor of forest economics at Auburn University, has received the School of Forestry's Harold E. Christen Teaching Award for 1999.

Forestry Dean Richard Brinker said the award recognizes Teeter, who is widely known for his research, as one of the school's top teaching faculty, as well.

"Dr. Teeter has dedicated a great investment of his time and scholarly energy into his teaching program, and the results are obvious in the knowledge levels of his former students," said Brinker.

"He has used his research expertise to build a broad teaching program that includes Forest Management, Forest Policy, and Geographic Information Systems," Brinker added. "Dedication to the learning experience of the students has been paramount to him. He truly represents the sincere, dedicated professor that desires to make a strong, positive impact on his students."

Teeter helped initiate the schoolıs "hands-on" global informations systems course in 1991 and now teaches undergraduate sections of the course each spring. Students from a wide variety of departments also take the course. He also teaches courses in forest management and forest economics.
