Lynne Marie Kohm Awarded the 2017 Faculty Excellence in Service Award

Each quarter, Regent University’s Office of Academic Affairs honors faculty members with Faculty Excellence Awards.

On November 7, Regent Law professor Lynn Marie Kohm was awarded the 2017 Faculty Excellence Award in the area of service. According to Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño, executive vice president of Academic Affairs, Kohm “embodies the cheerful servant leader,” and claims that her most important service to LAW is her commitment to coordinating a student women’s discipleship group.

“[Kohm] exemplifies servant leadership,” said Moreno-Riaño. “She works tirelessly to promote her school to external audiences … in her faculty development role, she passionately encourages faculty to develop their research and scholarship.”

Congratulations to Professor Lynne Marie Kohm!
