This highly regard- ed honor is given annually to a University instructor who has proven to be remarkable in his or her field and in com- municating its principles to others. Kullman was chosen by nominations from faculty, students, and alumni, and by a committee whose members were previous recipients of the award. Along with a cash prize and limelight attention, Kullman will also have his name inscribed on a plaque and hung in the Chancellor ' s office with the rest of the awards ' honorees. The Ventress Order, which is named for University founder James Alexander Ventress, has been established to support the College of Liberal Arts and give alumni the opportunity to remain a contributing part of the University. To become a member, alum- ni must provide a generous financial gift beginning at a minimum set by the founda- tion.
