West Virginia State University (WVSU) Associate Professor of Chemistry Dr. Micheal Fultz has been named a finalist for the 2020 West Virginia Professor of the Year Award.

Each year the Faculty Merit Foundation of West Virginia honors an outstanding faculty member from a West Virginia college or university.

Fultz is one of five finalists for the 2020 Professor of the Year honor.

Interviews with the five candidates are being held on Tuesday, January 26. Traditionally, finalists are honored at a springtime banquet in Charleston, where the Professor of the Year is announced. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, plans for a banquet have not been determined.

The Faculty Merit Foundation was created in 1984 to provide a means to recognize and reward innovation and creativity among the faculties of West Virginia’s public and private colleges and universities. Through the Professor of the Year program, the outstanding achievements of those individuals are brought to the attention of the general public. A $10,000 cash award is given to the candidate selected as Professor of the Year, with smaller awards to the other finalists.

The other finalists for Professor of the Year are: Dr. Stephen Criniti, professor of English, West Liberty University; Dan Hollis, professor of journalism and mass communication, Marshall University; Dr. Julie Reneau, associate professor of education, Fairmont State University; and Dr. Michael Smith, professor of humanities, Bluefield State College

The Professor of the Year award is sponsored by: United Bank; Bowles Rice LLP; Greene, Ketchum, Farrell, Bailey & Tweel LLP; Maier Foundation; Graystone Consulting; and The Daywood Foundation, Inc.
