Economics Professors Daniel K. Benjamin and William R. Dougan have been recognized with university-wide awards for outstanding teaching.
Dan Benjamin has been named the 2008 Alumni Master Teacher by the Student Alumni Association. Dan is the third member of the Economics faculty to receive this award, joining Rex Cottle and Bobby McCormick. Dan will be recognized at the May graduation ceremony, where he will be presented with a medal representing his selection as Master Teacher by the Clemson Student Alumni Association. The students should be congratulated for their choice of an inspiring and demanding professor for this award.
Bill Dougan has been named the 2008 recipient of the Class of 1940 Douglas W. Bradbury Award.
This award is made for outstanding contributions to the Calhoun Honors College.

Bill joins Dan Benjamin as Economics Professors who have been recognized with the Bradbury Award by the Honors College. Bill was also named Outstanding Graduate Teacher in the College in 2005.
