Geography Program Area Awards

The Robert G. Foote Outstanding Student in Geography

Go back to Geography Awards.

Bob Foote came to WSC in 1970 and retired in the spring of 2000.  In his thirty years, he taught thousands of students, served on nearly every college committee, prepared hundreds of LEAD fellows for their study tours abroad, and assisted Pi Gamma Mu as a faculty sponsor. 

The annual award for the Outstanding Student in Geography (now named after Bob) is conferred upon the student who, in the opinion of the Geography faculty, has achieved the highest academic performance in two or more Geography courses at Wayne State College during the past academic year.  The recipient receives a handsome certificate suitable for framing.
