L.T. Murray Family Chair for Excellence: Paula Coumou
The L.T. Murray Family Chair for Excellence is awarded to a faculty or staff member who has provided distinguished service to AWS, involved themselves beyond the school in ways that promote the goals and philosophy of AWS, and demonstrated excellence in academics that encourage global understanding.
