Lowney Recognized as December Faculty of Distinction

January 30, 2015

Teresa Lowney has been selected as College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Faculty of Distinction for the month of December. 

Lowney is part of CWI’s Professional Technical Education division as an adjunct faculty for the Business and Information Technology programs. Lowney’s hard work is leaving a wonderful legacy of learning for her students. With short notice before the semester started, Lowney took on the responsibility of teaching a course she hadn’t expected to. She did so with her usual enthusiasm and positive energy. By taking on the class, it allowed multiple students the opportunity to keep their schedules and avoid a significant inconvenience for them. From the start Lowney embraced how this was the right thing to do for her students and took it head on.

Her colleagues say Lowney is always helpful and incredibly supportive of others. One coworker says, “When I put on events or have ideas for students in her classes, Teresa jumps in with both feet and spreads the word. I am thankful to work with her and appreciate her verve for life she brings to all around her.”

CWI is proud to congratulate Teresa for receiving December’s Faculty of Distinction.
