Congratulations to DPT Faculty Member, Kathy Lee Bishop, PT, DPT, CCS who has been chosen this year for a Crystal Apple Award. The Crystal Apple Awards honor faculty members who go above and beyond in their search for knowledge and involvement in the Emory community. Each year, students are asked to nominate their professors. Of the eight (8) different Crystal Awards, Dr. Bishop was chosen to receive the Laura Jones Hardman Award for Excellence in Service to the Emory Community.
This award is named for Mrs. Laura Jones Hardman, a distinguished member of the Emory Board of Trustees, who exemplifies devotion to Emory, its students, and unsurpassed altruism to the greater community. It is bestowed upon an instructor who exemplifies incredible service that is generally separate from obligations to teaching and research. Dr. Bishop has been in the forefront for a number of years in promoting heart health in our community and has modeled for our students volunteerism at many levels in serving our community. Clearly, our students have recognized her altruism and unbeknownst to the faculty (including Dr. Bishop) took it upon themselves to nominate her successfully for this award! This is Emory’s only teaching award given to teachers by students and thus makes it all the more special!
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Bishop on this outstanding honor. We would also like to congratulate Dr. Bishop on a very nice article which featured her in the AJC entitled “PT, Daughter and Advocate”! Please click here to read the article.
