JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Four faculty members at Arkansas State University are being honored with awards given to them by their peers.  At the 33rd annual Faculty Honors Convocation the faculty members were honored for being the "best" in the four categories of teaching, professional service, scholarship and academic advising.

There are over 450 full-time faculty members at ASU.  Interim Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Dr. Glen Jones said being chosen for any of the four awards is a great honor.

"It's clearly being deemed to be the best in this particular area as determined by your peers so it means a lot," said Jones.

In addition to the awards, 8 retiring faculty members were also honored.
