In recognition of Dr. Brand's exceptional teaching, the Texas Section of the Mathematical Association of America awarded Dr. Neal Brand the Distinguished College and University Teaching of Mathematics Award. Our own Dr. Iaia presented Dr. Brand with the award.
Although Dr. Brand will continue to teach at UNT during the upcoming fall semesters, he retired from full-time service to UNT at the end of 2016. In appreciation of his exceptional service to UNT over many years, his friends and colleagues had a tree planted on campus.
