The United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) has awarded Dr. Steven P. Nichols the prestigious Educator of the Year Award for 2011. This is one of the organization's most distinguished awards, and is given selectively---there are a number of years it has not been given. This year, there was a sizeable pool of nominees and it was an excellent group of distinguished individuals.
The organization has been able to recognize some truly accomplished educators over the years---pioneers and individuals who fundamentally advanced the discipline of entrepreneurship, meaningfully touched student lives, and impacted entrepreneurial practice. Dr. Nichols epitomizes what the Educator of the Year Award is all about, and is indeed a deserving winner.
