Dr. Adrienne Brundage’s engaging teaching style and her caring for students has yet garnered another award as she was recognized by Residence Life on Friday, February 1 at the Memorial Student Center.
Brundage was recognized with the organization’s Honoring Excellence Award during its ceremony in the Gates Ballroom. The awards are given annually to eight outstanding and faculty staff who go above and beyond inside and outside of their daily jobs to impact student learning and academic success.
As an Associate Instructional Professor, Brundage teaches the Veterinary Entomology (ENTO 208), Medical Entomology (ENTO 423), undergraduate seminar, and Intro to Forensic Sciences (FIVS 205), where she has taught several hundred students each semester.
Brundage also is very active in several outreach programs, including teaching high school students during the Youth Outreach Program and various children’s groups and schools in the Brazos Valley in both entomology and forensics. In addition to outreach, she has advised such organizations as the First Responders Training Unit, the Order of Aggie Illusionists, and the Aggie Forensic Sciences Organization during her career.
“It was really sweet, and it means a lot to be recognized by my students. As another professor at the event said we often hear the negative from our students, and seldom get to hear the positive,” Brundage said. “The whole event was full of smiles and laughter, and I really appreciated my students going out of their way to do this for me. I am touched that they would, and so incredibly honored that I was chosen for this award.”
