by Public Relations Office - Cedarville, OH

Dr. Jeff Fawcett ’82, associate professor of marketing, and Faith Linn ’83, director of alumni relations, were selected by the student body as Faculty and Staff Members of the Year at the spring Honors Day chapel.

In announcing Jeff as the faculty award recipient, Student Academic Advisory Board President Jillian Anderson ’06 explained, “He is a professor that teaches with his personality and life as well as textbooks. … Students say, ‘His concern for us is unparalleled’ … He is caring, competent, committed, and innovative.”

Jeff has been on the Cedarville faculty since 1987. In addition to his Cedarville degree, he holds degrees from the University of Baltimore and Cleveland State. Using his innovative teaching style, he coordinates the “Integrated Business Core” class, which allows students to form their own “companies,” turn a profit, and donate the proceeds to local charities. He also advises Cedarville’s chapter of Sigma Beta Delta (an international honor society for business students) and the Student CEOs organization.

Faith has served her fellow graduates as alumni relations director since 1997. She is known for bringing a personal touch to the University’s interaction with alumni, mentoring students, advising the Delta Alpha Epsilon student organization, and serving as editor of the Inspire alumni magazine, among many other responsibilities.

Jillian explained that Faith has “a genuine heart for people and the students of Cedarville. She goes above and beyond the call of duty, time after time. … She ministers to others as though they were her own family.”
