Saint Martin's faculty member receives teaching recognition

Dec. 12, 2005

Lacey – William L. “Willie” Jackson, a Saint Martin’s University adjunct teacher of history and political science at the university’s extension campuses, is the recipient of a Commander’s Certificate for Distinguished Faculty. The honor was received at the 19th annual college graduation for I Corps and Fort Lewis in November.

Jackson was honored as a “consummate educational professional who places the highest priority on meeting student needs, no matter the time or place.

His citation notes, “He places great pride in his availability to teach those events and issues that shape our world today and his consistently exceptional student course assessments are testimony to his hard labor on behalf of our non-traditional student population.”

Jackson, a Dupont resident, has taught classes for Saint Martin’s since 1976. He also is director of veterans services for Saint Martin’s. A U.S. Army veteran, his service included a tour of duty in Vietnam. Jackson earned his bachelor’s and master’s of political science degrees from Washington State University.
