Each year, an award will be given to a Huxley College professor who best embodies the excellence in teaching that Dr. Mookherjee has demonstrated over the course of his remarkable career.

A reception to honor Mookherjee and his service to Huxley and WWU will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 4, in the Solarium, Old Main 590, on the WWU campus.
