MCCC Professor Wins Distinguished Teaching Award
Mercer County Community College (MCCC) has presented its 2004 “Distinguished Teaching Award” to Professor Framarz Khoushab, who chairs the college’s Business Administration program. He has taught economics, statistics and international business there for 13 years. The award, presented during the college’s commencement ceremonies on May 27, included a solid gold medallion.
According to MCCC Vice President Thomas Wilfrid, Khoushab’s students rate him as outstanding and he takes a leadership role on campus. "His greatest claim to academic fame is his overwhelming effectiveness as an instructor, and his patient nurturing of, and care for, his students,” Wilfrid said.
Khoushab has earned three master's degrees and has 39 credits toward a Ph.D at Temple University. He previously taught at Philadelphia University, West Chester University and Penn State.
In accepting the award, Khoushab said, "I am honored and speechless. It is a good feeling to be recognized for the work that you do... Mostly I must thank our students who simultaneously challenge, inspire and reward us."
