“Serving as a Faculty Scholar is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had,” Harris said in a press release. “The professional development gained by faculty members from all over the country cannot be equaled. Working with honor students is an absolute joy, and I am grateful to Phi Theta Kappa and Jefferson State for this amazing opportunity.”
The faculty scholars will serve as discussion facilitators for the Honors Institute at Boston University June 13-17.
