University of Arkansas at Little Rock students are honoring faculty members who make their hearts sing with appreciation for the positive difference they’ve made in their students’ lives.
Each of the 2022 recipients of the Student Government (SGA) Association Faculty Appreciation Awards received a certificate and a one-of-a-kind, handmade glass heart created by Pine Bluff glass artist James Hayes in the colors of UA Little Rock.
The glass hearts symbolize positive, influential support that makes a real difference in the lives of students. As students enter the university to pursue their education, faculty often play a nurturing role, guiding students through the learning process and working hard to foster an environment that best ensures success.

Dr. Rebecca Glazier, associate professor of political science, College of Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences, and Education
Dr. Stefanie Leacock, instructor of biology and coordinator of undergraduate studies, Donaghey College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
