Dr. Shane Hunt Wins Faculty Award From Sun Belt Conference

Arkansas State University Athletics

This is A-State Connections on KASU.  I’m Johnathan Reaves.  For the first time, the Sun Belt Conference presented special awards to faculty members across the conference who were nominated for the 2019 Faculty of the Year Awards.  For Arkansas State, R.M. “Bob” Wood Endowed Professor in Sales Leadership and Professor of Marketing Dr. Shane Hunt won the honor.  He also won another award for leading his students in a major sales campaign.  I talked to Dr. Hunt about these awards, but first, I asked him how he came to Arkansas State.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.  

That is Dr. Shane Hunt.  He is the R.M. “Bob” Wood Endowed Professor in Sales Leadership and Professor of Marketing at Arkansas State University, and has won the honors of the 2019 National Teaching Innovation Award presented by the Association of Collegiate Marketing Educators.  He also won the 2019 Faculty Member of the Year Award for Arkansas State through the Sun Belt Conference.   Learn more about the award and who else won the Faculty Member of the Year award across the conference here.
