Eugene Asher Award Recipients
Established in 1986, the Eugene Asher Distinguished Teaching Award recognizes outstanding teaching and advocacy for history teaching at two-year, four-year, and graduate colleges and universities. The award is named for the late Eugene Asher, for many years a leading advocate for history teaching. The Society for History Education (SHE) shares with the AHA sponsorship of the award. It recognizes inspiring teachers whose techniques and mastery of subject matter made a lasting impression and substantial difference to students of history. Members of the AHA and SHE submit nominations to the Committee on Teaching Prizes.
2015 Asher Award
Kimberley Mangun, Univ. of Utah
We commend Dr. Mangun for her innovative techniques, especially in teaching history within the parameters of mass communication to both graduates and undergraduates. We are also impressed with her commitment to the promotion of local history and to the awareness of the roles of minorities within that history. Her ability to be a highly productive scholar and to be actively engaged in her community simply adds to a record of overall general excellence.
