Lawther Receives President's Award from State Association

Wednesday, June 07, 2017

Wendell _Lawther _2008__3Associate Professor Wendell Lawther may be retiring at the end of the semester, however, it is not without recognition for his 33 years of service.

The Florida City and County Management Association presented Lawther with the President's Award during its 2017 awards ceremony at the Hilton Orlando. This award is bestowed annually by the leader of FCCMA in honor of those who have served and supported city and county management.

FCCMA president Bobby Green, one of Lawther's former students, awarded his former teacher because of his reputation and expertise in the field of public administration as well as for his many years of service to more than 3,000 students at UCF.

"My first class at UCF as an undergraduate in 1986 was Introduction to Public Administration with Dr. Lawther as the instructor," Green said in a release. "I always found his classes and lectures to be cutting edge and very informative. Many of his former students have served, or continue to serve, in all levels of government, including several members of the FCCMA."
