Scott Nolan named Rosenthal Outstanding Educator

Casper College has released the name of the winner of the Rosenthal Outstanding Educator Award for the 2014-2015 school year.

Scott Nolan received $2500 in addition to the recognition.

Nolan was born in Burlington, went to St. Alphonsus School and Randall School, Greybull Wyoming High School and Flagler College St. Augustine, Florida.

Nolan, a business instructor, has been with the college since August 2008.

“When I think of Scott, the first word that comes to mind is enthusiasm. Scott brings life to every conversation and his optimistic approach to problems or projects is infectious. Scott believes all things are possible, which is one of the reasons he is one of the college’s top leaders and teachers on our campus,” said Pete Van Houten, Casper College journalism instructor.

“The hours I spent in Mr. Nolan’s classes weren’t just your typical classroom hours; they were thought-provoking, they were gripping, and I always walked away feeling like I had genuinely learned something that day. As a student, that is powerful,” Dalsey Lambley, former student, said.

Each year all Casper College employees are asked to submit the names of those they wish to nominate for the Rosenthal Outstanding Educator Award. Each nominee must then submit a detailed packet of information to his or her respective committee to be considered. A faculty committee makes the final decision for the two faculty awards.

The award is based on the quality of the packet submitted as well as service to the community and Casper College.
