Seth Panitch, professor of acting in The University of Alabama’s department of theatre and dance, has earned the 2016 Blackmon-Moody Outstanding Professor Award.
Panitch will receive the award Nov. 11 in a ceremony at the UA President’s Mansion.
The Frederick Moody Blackmon and Sarah McCorkle Moody Outstanding Professor Award is one of the most prestigious awards given by UA. It is based on a specific accomplishment that is innovative, creative, useful or captures the imagination.
Created by Frederick Moody Blackmon, of Montgomery, to honor the memory of his grandmother, Sarah McCorkle Moody, of Tuscaloosa, the award is presented annually.
Dominic Yeager, assistant professor of theatre at UA, nominated Panitch based on his success in producing theatrical productions in Cuba.
