Nevelyn J Knisley Award for Teaching

The Nevelyn J. Knisely Award for Teaching is awarded annually to a member of the part-time and adjunct faculty in recognition of teaching excellence. In 1988, Lebanon Valley College created an award for part-time and adjunct members of the college faculty similar to the philosophy of the Vickroy Award. The first awardee was Nevelyn J. Knisley. After the presentation of the first award, the president of the College named this series of awards for Mrs. Knisley in recognition for her 24 years of inspired teaching in music.
