Highlights from the 2008 PSE Distinguished Faculty Recipient

Dean Lamb, Architectural Engineering Design Instructor
Dean received seven nominations. One of his students shared a story reflecting the true dedication and compassion Dean shows to his students on a daily basis. The student wrote,"One of many examples is of a young, single mother, who encountered a flat tire on the way to school. My instructor offered to have her tire fixed, at his expense. He called Les Schwab, had them come to the school parking lot, fix the tire, put the expense on his account, out of the goodness of his heart. The young student is struggling to support herself and her child and also trying to maintain her studies."

President John Walstrum commented, "He exceeds people's expectations for the standards in high quality programming that the college is known for."

Dean is a leader among his colleagues playing an active role on a number of committees at Clover Park Technical College. His dedication to excellence is evident in his students success.
