George Macon Award

The George Macon Memorial Award is given annually to a faculty member who through outstanding performance as a teacher, as a counselor, and as a friend to students demonstrates the ability to inspire students to greatness. This award, which carries with it a pin of distinction and a check for $1,000, arose from the creative interaction of a teacher with his student. The award honors the teacher, George Macon, who graduated from this school in the class of 1884 when it was called Howard College and joined the faculty in 1887 to teach Chemistry, Natural History, Applied Mathematics, and Engineering. He served twice at Howard College for a total of twenty-three years before taking an appointment elsewhere in 1918. The award was established by Roy L. Smart in 1976, a full sixty years after Mr. Smart was a student in George Macon's classes at Howard College. The George Macon award celebrates the enduring influence that a teacher can have on students, and in so doing it encourages us all to appreciate anew the profound significance of being called to teach.
