Hunter-Hamilton Love of Teaching Award

There is much undiscovered potential within each of us, which, if inspired by the right teacher, can change the world.
Most of us are privileged to have had a professor whose care and enthusiasm molded and often changed our lives.
These teachers stand out and continue their inspiration long after our college days.
The Hunter-Hamilton Love of Teaching Award seeks out and honors teachers whose ways of life uniquely inspire the potential of each student.
This award is given to a Queens faculty member by his or her peers for having displayed an exemplary love of teaching.
This award includes a monetary component, half of which goes to the faculty member and half to an academic department or program selected by the recipient.
This award is made possible by a gift from the late Dr. James Pressly Hamilton and Grey Hunter Hamilton '62 in honor of their parents, Buford Lindsay Hamilton and Frances Pressly Hamilton, servants of their Lord for 42 years as missionaries in Pakistan, and Richard Moore Hunter and Isabel Reid Hunter. Their faith, hope and love for their children had no bounds.
"Grey and Jim Hamilton's gift cuts to the heart of the Academy and the Church - two institutions they care about deeply. By remembering their parents they reflect the Biblical injunction: honor your father and mother. And, by rewarding great teaching, they confirm that the faculty is the soul of the academic institution. To Grey and daughter Isabel, Queens alumnae, and father Jim and son Hunter, Davidson graduates, we thank you for this great show of confidence."
--Dr. Billy O. Wireman (President of Queens, 1978-2002)
