Jerzy W. Jaromczyk was greeted with a pleasant surprise in his classroom recently, as he was named one of 2014’s Great Teachers at the University of Kentucky.
Jaromczyk is an associate professor and director of undergraduate studies in the College of Engineering. Jaromczyk, a two-time recipient of the award, was nominated by students Nickolas Graczyk, Matthew Fahrbach and John Walker.
The UK Alumni Association recognizes six professors each year for outstanding teaching, presenting them with Great Teacher Awards. Each professor is awarded a plaque and cash award at a recognition luncheon or dinner. It is the oldest award teachers can receive from the university, having been given continuously since 1961.
