Professor Kris Lane has won a 2009 Plumeri Award for Faculty Excellence. Created by alumnus and former Board of Visaitor member Joseph J. Plumeri ('66), the Plumeri Awards carry with them a cash prize of $10,000 to be spent on research opportunities and materials, professional development, or other expenses associated with research or teaching.
"This first group of Plumeri recipients represents a distinguished list of William & Mary faculty," said Provost P. Geoffrey Feiss, who selected the 2009 recipients following nominations from their deans. "All of these individuals are exemplary teachers and respected researchers. Each would be a valued member of any university faculty in America. We are very pleased that we can recognize and support their important work."
