This award for faculty teaching excellence in the School of Civil and Construction Engineering is presented annually by the Associated General Contractors Student Chapter during Contractors Night and is a tribute to Dennis Marker’s personal dedication to educational excellence. Marker worked for CH2MHill in Corvallis as a geotechnical engineer, was an instructor in CCE and was enrolled in the CCE doctoral program when he passed away suddenly in 1984 at the age of 44. Dennis was well-liked by all, was a good teacher, and was a great value to CCE.
