The Mizzou Alumni Association included two Mizzou Law faculty members and one alumna among the recipients of the 2020 Faculty-Alumni Awards.
- R. Wilson Freyermuth – 61st Annual Distinguished Faculty Award
- Justice Patricia Breckenridge, ’77 – 2020 Faculty-Alumni Award Recipient
- Frank O. Bowman, III – 2020 Faculty-Alumni Award Recipient
“We are honored to recognize Mizzou’s best and brightest, both in and out of the classroom,” said Todd McCubbin, MAA Executive Director. “It is the combined efforts of our world-class faculty and accomplished alumni that make this University such an incredible place, both for our scholars and our community at large.”
First celebrated in 1968, these awards recognize the achievements of Mizzou’s faculty and alumni. Faculty are considered for their work as teachers, administrators and researchers, while alumni are considered for their professional accomplishments and service to Mizzou.
November 20, 2020 would have been the date of their official induction at the Faculty-Alumni Awards ceremony. Instead, recipients will be recognized for their stellar contributions at a later date.
“We look forward to celebrating these incredible Tigers and their accomplishments,” said Robin Wenneker, MAA President. “It’s a wonderful reminder of the talent we find ourselves surrounded by every day on this campus and the impressive Tigers in our alumni community. Mizzou is truly fortunate.”
“Each of these individuals has contributed to the success of our university and community through their excellence in teaching, research, leadership and service,” said Dr. Mun Choi, UM System President and MU Chancellor.
“With their support and guidance, Mizzou continues to strengthen its role as a national, public, AAU institution of the highest caliber. On behalf of Tigers everywhere, I want to thank our outstanding awardees for their hard work and commitment.”
