Dr. Sue Wambold, professor and chair of the Department of Kinesiology was recognized as one of the University’s Outstanding Teachers for 2015 at the Outstanding Faculty and Adviser Award Ceremony held on April 27, 2015. She started teaching at UT in 1989.
Below are comments from nominators:
“There was a time when I didn’t think college was for me anymore, and it showed in my grades,” one nominator wrote. “Professor Wambold knew I could be doing better, and she invited me to talk to her about classes and my future. She helped me to keep at it and raise my grades.” Another noted, “Sue isn’t just a professor I have, she is a friend and a mentor, always giving wisdom to her students and doing it with a smile. I hope to stay in touch with her long after my time at UT comes to a close. Sue is an excellent role model in education and just in general. Her life lessons in and out of the classroom will stay with me forever.”
