Paula Englis with StudentsA management professor who ranks among the very best at her craft and an accounting specialist known for her commitment to students are the 2013 recipients of Berry’s Martindale Awards of Distinction. Professor of Management and Department Chair Paula Englis (seen here with a past group of entrepreneurship students) claimed the faculty honor, while Susan Floyd won the award for staff.

Praised for her exemplary teaching, research and service, Paula consistently ranks among the top instructors in the Campbell School of Business, often earning perfect scores on her evaluations. Student satisfaction in her strategy course is especially impressive, helping Berry to rank among the top colleges and universities nationwide in a recent survey. Her expertise is recognized on both sides of the Atlantic – she holds a joint appointment with the University of Twente in the Netherlands – and her prolific research has been cited more than 1,300 times.

Susan, a 14-year veteran of the Berry staff, was lauded for being an “exemplary model for customer service” as she performs duties critical to the operation of the college. Her attitude and influence were summed up by a former student worker who is now a proud colleague: “You could ask Susan the same question a hundred times and she would work you through it as if it was the first time you had asked. She is the reason I decided to come to work at Berry.”

Two other notable awards presented in May were the Mary S. and Samuel Poe Carden Award and the Dave and Lou Garrett Award for Meritorious Teaching. The Carden Award went to Dr. Mary C. Clement, professor of teacher education and director of Berry’s Center for Teaching Excellence. The Garrett Award was presented to Associate Professor of Art Jere Lykins.

Also this spring, the Berry College Board of Trustees approved emeritus status for Dr. Bob Pearson and Dr. Lynnwood Belvin, both of whom are retiring.
