Lewis Receives Eagle Excellence Award
Annually, the Office of Leadership and Community Engagement presents a member of the Georgia Southern University faculty or staff with the Kathryn Grube Unsung Hero Award. The award honors a faculty or staff member who has assisted an organization or organizations above and beyond the call of duty. This year, School of Nursing Assistant Professor Nikiya Lewis, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, was recognized with this honor.
“I was shocked to see that I had been nominated for an Eagle Excellence Award. I felt honored to know that nursing students have felt the impact of my teaching and service in their life and nursing education,” stated Lewis. “Receiving this award was another reminder of my “why” for choosing to work in academia, the students.”
