Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid yesterday met with Dr. David Holland, the 2011 Nevada Professor of the Year and assistant professor of history at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) in his Washington, D.C. office. Dr. Holland and his wife, Jeanne, traveled to the nation’s capital for a reception hosted by the U.S. Professors of the Year Program. The four national winners will be announced at the reception.
“I was pleased to welcome Dr. Holland and his wife, Jeanne, to my office to congratulate him on this impressive achievement,” Reid said. “I have always remembered and carried with me the lessons my favorite professors and teachers taught me as a student. Students at UNLV are fortunate to have such a wonderful history professor in Dr. Holland.”
Dr. Holland has been a professor at UNLV since 2005 and currently teaches courses on early U.S. history and religion. He previously was a lecturer at Stanford, where he completed his Ph.D. He received his undergraduate degree, also in history, at Brigham Young University.
The U.S. Professors of the Year Program, which began in 1981, is sponsored by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and is the only national program to recognize excellence in undergraduate teaching and mentoring.
