Kenneth Walz, a 2006 PhD graduate of the Environmental Chemistry and Technology program in the UW-MadisonCollege of Engineering, was named “2010 Wisconsin Professor of the Year” today by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
Walz teaches chemistry and engineering at Madison Area Technical College and leads a consortium for education in renewable energy technology. He also is an adjunct professor in UW-Madison civil and environmental engineering and at UW-Stevens Point.
Walz was one of 38 exemplary teachers chosen nationwide by CASE from more than 300 nominees.
“I’m so honored to receive this award, but really the ultimate measure of my success is the ability of my students to achieve their goals and realize their dreams after they have left my classroom,” says Walz.
