The 2009 recipient of Samford's Buchanan Award for Excellence in Classroom Teaching is gifted artist Professor Lowell Vann. Since 1970, serving as chair of the department of art, it has been his privilege to teach in the studio area - basic design, drawing, painting, crafts, and pottery. Dr. Vann's amazing Chalk Talk, in collaboration with the Bells of Buchanan, is a highlight of the convocation program and a student favorite.
