Nominations for the 2013 Frank and Dorothy Humel Hovorka Prize, to be presented at commencement exercises in May, are now being accepted.
The prize was established in 1994 by Dorothy Humel Hovorka to recognize exceptional achievement by an active or emeritus member of the faculty. Her intention in creating this award is captured in the following statement:
“Among the factors that determine the stature of a university’s contributions to society, none exerts so great a force as the strength of its faculty. For this reason, Case Western Reserve University annually awards the Frank and Dorothy Humel Hovorka Prize to recognize a faculty member whose exceptional achievements in teaching, research and scholarly service have benefited the community, the nation and the world.”
Dorothy Humel Hovorka is a leader in the arts and community affairs and an honorary member of the university’s board of trustees. Her late husband, Frank Hovorka, was a distinguished member of the faculty in the Department of Chemistry.
