"Dr. Jacobs is truly committed to helping teachers and their students embrace the importance of scientific thinking and the value of field work in the Earth, life and environmental sciences," said Linda Knight, past president of TESTA, past president of the National Earth Science Teachers Association and past president of STAT.

Jacobs dedicated to sharing knowledge and talents as leading scientist

Noting that Jacobs has consistently given his time, talents and knowledge to TESTA over the years, Kathryn A. Barclay, TESTA Board of Directors, said, "Dr. Jacobs models and exemplifies the collaboration between the K-12 science education community and the post-secondary University science level that is necessary to advance scientific knowledge and opportunities in Texas for our students. His dedication to sharing his knowledge and talents as a leading scientist in the field of vertebrate paleontology makes him our 'Indiana Jones' to Texas' teachers and students."

In addition to the Skoog Cup, the association also recognized Outstanding Science Teacher of the Year and Administrator of the Year.

"The honored educators and administrators embody the devotion to their calling that all our members share," said Chuck Hempstead, executive director of the association, acknowledging Jacobs and the others. "As Texas public education continues to face the specter of budget cuts and outdated textbooks, we can take pride in these honorees' dedication to tomorrow's scientific leaders."

Jacobs and the other award winners will be honored during the association's annual Conference for the Advancement of Science Teaching, Nov. 8-10 in Corpus Christi. The Skoog Cup is named for the first award recipient, Dr. Gerald Skoog, professor emeritus, College of Education, Texas Tech University.

Science education and respect for learning benefit all
