Whereas the first professor being honored is Alicia Juarrero for the Outstanding Community College Professor of the Year award, who is a professor of philosophy at Prince George’s Community College, has taught at the Largo, Maryland, institution since 1975, has created an honors colloquium called ‘Minds, Brains, and Machines’ at the college, teaches a philosophy module in the National Endowment for the Humanities that uses a college-level humanities course to bring the poor out of poverty and into the full life of their communities;

Whereas the second professor being honored is James Adams for Outstanding Baccalaureate College Professor of the Year, who has served Manchester College in North Manchester, Indiana, for 42 years, has been an exchange professor to Germany and Spain, and was instrumental in creating study-abroad programs on his campus;
