Three Faculty Awarded Waple Professorships

Three faculty members have received Waple Professorships to support two years of research and scholarship. In the inaugural year of the professorships, awards went to one faculty member from each of the three colleges: Allyson Poska, professor of history; George Meadows, professor of education; and Dave Henderson, assistant professor of accounting and management information systems.

The professorships are supported by an endowment from the estate of Shirley Van Epps Waple’52. For more information about the professorships, visit
