Minutolo Receives Excellence in Teaching Award
Anthony Minutolo, assistant professor of engineering and physics, has been selected as the winner of Lee University’s 2023 Excellence in Teaching Award.
The winner of this award is chosen by a special committee, which includes representatives of six different academic departments. Lee President Dr. Mark L. Walker officially recognized Minutolo for this award during the university’s spring commencement.
“Teaching excellence is of the highest value at Lee University, and it is one of the most distinct honors a faculty member can receive,” said Walker. “Anthony Minutolo fully demonstrates this value each time he steps into a classroom. He is well deserving of this recognition.”
Minutolo has experience teaching a wide variety of mathematics, physics, and chemistry courses, and is currently the driving force behind the development of an engineering program at Lee. He also planted the first Young Life outreach for teenagers in Bradley County.
Minutolo earned his Master of Science and his Bachelor of Science at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK). He was a Gann Teaching Fellow recipient and received the Harry Row Scholarship for Use of Technology in the Classroom, given by the UTK Department of Mathematics.
“I am deeply humbled to have received this award knowing there are many just as deserving,” said Minutolo. “Excellent teaching is a keystone that upholds Lee, and it is a privilege to work alongside the Lee faculty who strive for this every day they step in front of students.”
The Excellence Awards are the highest honors presented to Lee faculty members and recognize advising, scholarship, and teaching. The Excellence in Teaching is the oldest award and considered to be superior among the three.
