Greg Creech, an instructor at Emory’s Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL), has been selected to receive the 2008 ACHE South Outstanding Faculty Award.

ACHE is the Association of Continuing Higher Education. The award recognizes Creech for demonstrating excellence in creative teaching and innovative delivery of learning as a certified technical trainer at CLL.

George Engelhard, professor, and Vanessa Siddle Walker, Winship Distinguished Research Professor, both in the Division of Educational Studies, have been selected as Fellows by the American Educational Research Association.

The peer-nominated honorees are chosen in recognition of their exceptional scientific or scholarly contributions to education research or significant contributions to the field through the development of research opportunities and settings.

Nanette K. Wenger has received the distinguished Master award by the American College of Cardiology, the organization’s highest honor. Established in 1998, only four Master designations from peer nominations are awarded each year.

Wenger, a professor of medicine in the School of Medicine’s Division of Cardiology and chief of cardiology at Grady Memorial Hospital, was recognized for her pioneering clinical and research efforts in revealing cardiovascular disease as the number one killer of women in the United States.
