Sunil Thapa, Wayne R. Bomstad Memorial Award Recipient


December 2015


The Wayne R. Bomstad II Memorial Award for lab sections is awarded annually to Teaching Assistants who have displayed excellence in teaching in laboratory sections. The awards honor the memory of Wayne Bomstad, who was for some years an important member of the graduate student teaching team. It was made possible by contributions from his family and friends. This year's recipient is Sunil Thapa.


Sunil Thapa, pictured with Graduate Coordinator Guido Mueller, has been teaching labs every semester since he arrived in the Fall of 2013. He is excellent at presenting and teaching the lab as well as assisting in help sessions. He typically has 5-10 students coming to preview the lab for the week and that is quite a crowd for help sessions. Additionally, Sunil helped out by teaching an extra section of lab during Summer 2015.
