JBU Professor Receives Outstanding Alumnus Award from U of A

Siloam Springs, Ark (February 11, 2000) — Dr. David E. Johnson, Professor of Psychology at John Brown University, was recently awarded the 1999 Outstanding Alumnus Award from the Department of Psychology at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville.

Every year, each department from the University of Arkansas selects an alumnus to recognize for outstanding achievements in their respective field.

"It is an honor to be selected to win this award. It is always gratifying to be recognized by peers and mentors," said Johnson.

Johnson was also inducted into the distinguished Fulbright College Alumni Academy.

Fulbright College graduates contribute to students and faculty by connecting with their former department in several ways. They can teach a workshop, deliver a lecture, lead a field trip, give a performance, show their work, visit classes or mentor individual students in person, by e-mail, or through the departmental web site. Some may offer internship positions to students or help them find a job after graduation.

"The Fulbright College Alumni Academy is a wonderful mechanism for promoting interaction between alumni and their former departments," said Johnson. "Alumni often have specific expertise and experiences that can benefit both the faculty and the students."

John Brown University is a private university providing Christ-centered higher education to over 1,500 students from over 47 states and 33 countries. JBU is recognized by the John Templeton Foundation in their Honor Roll of Character Building Colleges and is included in the U.S. News & World Report’s list of top regional colleges and universities.
