Carrell, a professor of philosophy, earned the Arthur and Ilene Baynham Outstanding Teaching Award for the third time. Established by the College in 1969, the honoree is selected by a ballot of currently enrolled students and alumni from the past two graduating classes. To be eligible, a faculty member must be in at least the fourth year of teaching at the College. The winner receives a bronze medallion and a cash prize.
Carrell came to Hanover as a part-time faculty member in 1995 and began teaching full time in 1998. He teaches courses in ancient philosophy, Greek, ancient literature in translation and ancient history.
He previously received the Baynham Award in 2005 and 2010. He joins professors Darrin Rubino (biology), Larry Thornton (history) and George Curtis (history) as the only three-time recipients in the 50-year history of the award. In addition, Carrell's wife, Kate Johnson, also a professor of philosophy, is a two-time recipient. She earned the Baynham Award in 1999 and 2015.
Hanson, associate professor of education and director of teacher education, received the Daryl R. Karns Award for Scholarly and Creative Activity. The award, named for the biology professor who died in 2011, recognizes sustained scholarly or creative achievement. Faculty members nominate colleagues for the award, which are sent to three judges at liberal arts colleges similar to Hanover. The winner receives a bronze medallion and a cash prize.
Hanson, who joined the College’s faculty in 2006, teaches courses including foundations of education, inquiry in education, early child literacy and development, designing environmental curriculum, elementary science and math methods, and teaching science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
