Christopher Neck, assistant professor of management at Virginia Tech's Pamplin College of Business, has received the 1998 Students' Choice Award.
The campus-wide recognition of teaching excellence is sponsored by the Virginia Tech Student Alumni Associates, a volunteer group of students that assists with alumni and student events.
On Faculty Appreciation Day each spring, the group sets up balloting stations around campus where students can cast their votes for their favorite faculty member. This is the second such honor for Neck, who won a similar award in 1996.
Neck, whose research specialty is in leadership, motivation, and total quality management, teaches a course on management theory and leadership practices to about 500 students each semester. He has also received several awards for teaching excellence from the Pamplin College of Business.
