Surrounded by faculty, undergraduate students, and GSIs who held balloons, flowers and a framed certificate, Huntsinger received the award from Professor Laura Stoker, Chair of the Graduate Council Advisory Committee for GSI Affairs, as a surprise in the middle of a spring class.
“Lynn’s mentorship provides us with a key opportunity for us to grow as instructors in our own right,” wrote one GSI who nominated Huntsinger for the award. “Lynn also works hard to share decision-making with GSIs and to give them authentic teaching and course planning experience.”
