Three University of Georgia faculty members have been named recipients of the Richard B. Russell Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching, the university's highest early career teaching honor.

The awards are administered annually by the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost and are named for Richard B. Russell, the university alumnus and long-serving senator from Georgia. Each awardee receives $5,000 from the Russell Foundation, which established the awards in 1991.

The 2014 Russell Award winners are:

• Anthony Madonna, assistant professor of political science in the School of Public and International Affairs;
• Maria Navarro, associate professor of agricultural leadership, education and communication in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences; and
• John Schramski, associate professor in the College of Engineering.
