Dr. Terrell Peace, professor of education and director of graduate and undergraduate teacher education, passed the Peer Award to Matthew Ruiz. Ruiz serves as instructor in exercise science and has been with HU for one year. In recognizing Ruiz, Peace wrote, “Matthew has worked as hard as any new faculty member I have seen in 20 years in higher education. Because we are in the same division, I have been able to observe his work in revitalizing the exercise science program almost since the day he stepped on campus. He has had the responsibility to revise curriculum and create new curriculum in a way that very few new faculty are asked to do. Matthew has been diligent in his task with one goal in mind, to have a strong, viable exercise science program at HU. I salute Matthew for his commitment and diligence.”
