PIPPA PASSES, Ky. — Each year, Alice Lloyd College honors outstanding members of the campus community with awards that reflect the College’s time-honored tradition of servant leadership.

The recipient of the “Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership Award” was Dr. Janelle Pryor, professor of biology at Alice Lloyd. Dr. Pryor was chosen for the award by three of her fellow faculty members and the president of the Student Government Association (SGA). She is a graduate of Ohio University where she earned a Ph.D. in Environmental and Plant Biology. Dr. Pryor later received a second Ph.D. in Physiology and Biophysics from the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Not only an excellent educator, she is also involved with various campus activities, including serving as faculty sponsor of the Allied Health Club and the Impact Club, which involves students in campus and community service projects while developing skills in leadership and citizenship.
