Wythe Award Discussion with Paul McCorkle

Paul McCorkle speaks with Buena Vista College faculty about the purpose and uses of the George Wythe Award.

The George Wythe Award is Buena Vista University's highest honor for excellence in teaching. The award was endowed in 1988 through a gift from the late Drs. Paul and Vivian (Class of 1959) McCorkle, who were both Life Trustees of BVU. It is named for George Wythe, the educator who taught such famous fathers of the American Revolution as Thomas Jefferson, John Marshall, James Monroe and Henry Clay.

The George Wythe Award includes a $30,000 cash award and a sabbatical for the recipient to pursue professional development and/or research.
