Honors & Recognition

GSW Music Professor Named Steinway & Sons Top Teacher

Associate Professor of Music, Dr. Mark Laughlin, is a recipient of the Steinway & Sons Top Teacher Award for 2017. The Steinway Piano Gallery-Spanish Fort (Alabama) nominated Laughlin for the award. “[Dr. Laughlin’s] hard work and commitment to teaching and inspiring young people in their study of piano music is commendable and rare,” said Ron Losby, CEO of Steinway & Sons, N.Y. “Through his efforts, he helps…lay the foundation for a lifetime of musical and artistic expression. This award is a mark of his artistry and dedicated leadership in music education.”

Laughlin will be presented the award at the 2018 Gulf Coast Steinway Society’s 3rd Annual Music Competition, hosted by the University of Mobile. Laughlin will present a seminar on improvisation and will serve as one of the adjudicators for the piano competition.

Teasley presented with Patriot Award from DOD

Dr. Teresa Teasley, professor of nursing, was recently presented with the Patriot Award by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). Presenting the award is Lt. Col. Bonnie Gary, GSW School of Nursing faculty and Air Force Reserve member. Because all branches of the military rely heavily on the National Guard and the Reserves, the DOD began a program called Employer Support for Guard and Reserves (ESGR). This national program recognizes employers who military members feel are very supportive while away on active duty. Gary will retire in January 2018 after 30 years of Reserve duty and was delighted to present this award. Shown in the photo with Gary and Teasley.
