Mashtare, Walters receive teaching awards
Michael Mashtare, assistant professor in the Department of Agronomy and in Environmental and Ecological Engineering, and Becky Walters, clinical assistant professor in the School of Nursing, have been honored with the 2018 Exceptional Early Career Award. The two professors were surprised with the news on Tuesday (March 20).
Purdue is announcing recipients of the Murphy Award and the Exceptional Early Career Award throughout the week. Haley Oliver, associate professor in the Department of Food Science, received a Murphy Award on Monday (March 19).
