Advertising Institute Director Wins Two Notable Awards
Dr. Patricia Alvey has been honored by the American Advertising Federation and by Southern Methodist University
Dr. Patricia Alvey, Distinguished Chair and Director of the Temerlin Advertising Institute, has received two significant honors this spring. In April, she was named the Outstanding Advertising Educator 2010-2011 by the Tenth District of the American Advertising Federation. The award recognizes educators who “have made outstanding and unselfish contributions to the growth and improvement of advertising through the academic process.”
Dr. Alvey also was one of three faculty members honored with SMU's 2011 Distinguished University Citizen Award. The awards were presented at the Faculty Breakfast held May 14 before Commencement. The other two winners were Margaret Dunham of the Lyle School of Engineering and Dennis Foster of the Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences. The award, given by the Provost's Office, honors three faculty members each year for service and activities that benefit students and the University's academic mission.
