Faulkner Receives 2016 Adjunct Faculty Award During 120th Founders’ Day

As part of the University of Montevallo’s Founders’ Day tradition, deserving faculty are annually honored for their achievements and work to better the University.

While several full-time faculty are often honored, the University’s Provost Office annually recognizes the hard work of a member of the University’s adjunct faculty, as well.

This year, Lynn Faulkner, adjunct instructor of piano and a staff accompanist, was the recipient of the Adjunct Faculty Award.

Faulkner, a resident of Birmingham, began teaching at the University of Montevallo in 2007. She received her undergraduate, master’s and doctorate from the University of Alabama.

She received a number of accolades before moving into a teaching career. As a student, Faulkner received the Narramore Endowed Music Scholarship and was awarded the Wilbur Rowand Prize for Outstanding Music Student.

As an accompanist, Faulkner has backed southern soprano Elizabeth Futral, most notably at a recital in St. Bartholomew’s Church in New York City.

According to Dean of the College of Fine Arts Steven Peters, Faulkner’s technical abilities also make her stand out in her department.

“In addition to being a fine and accomplished pianist, year after year, she also excels in the rehearsal hall and the classroom, and in any other area of her assignments,” said Peters. “In our entire group of contingent faculty in the College of Fine Arts, Dr. Faulkner stands out as a model teacher.”

During the Founders’ Day ceremony on Oct. 13, University Provost Suzanne Ozment noted Faulkner’s overall influence on students. She noted that in her near decade long career at UM, Faulkner had forged relationships with students normally only full-time faculty are able to create.

“I can think of no one who has devoted herself more to the welfare and advancement of our students,” said Alan Goldspiel, chair of the Department of Music. “As Chair and colleague, I have witnessed and appreciated Lynn’s attention to students needing extra help and her willingness to be exceedingly generous with her time.”
