Two Professors Honored as Distinguished Alums
Professor Lawrence Bryant, History, was named a 2002 Distinguished Alumnus of the University of Iowa, where he earned his doctoral degree in history. His reputation as a distinguished scholar of European history with a focus on France was firmly established with the 1986 publication of his book, The King and the City in the Parisian Royal Ceremony: Politics, Art, and Ritual in the Renaissance. Bryant has been a Fellow at Princeton University's Institute for Advanced Studies and the Folger Shakespeare Library. He has won numerous grants from prestigious sources, including the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies. Bryant was named CSU, Chico Outstanding Professor for 1999 - 2000; he served as chair of the Department of History for two years. At the time of his Outstanding Professor award, a colleague praised Bryant for his dedication and generosity, a sentiment echoed many times over by students and friends.
Professor Charles Zartman, Professional Studies in Education, was named a 2002 Distinguished Alumnus of the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). Zartman, who has been at CSU, Chico for 17 years, teaches courses in the undergraduate professional program, Bilingual Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development program, and master's degree program. He also provides technical assistance to the Center for Bilingual/Multicultural Studies. Zartman has worked with programs serving English learners throughout the western United States and, for the past 15 years, has offered a summer institute for English teachers in the Republic of Korea. He provides professional development presentations for teachers and administrators in numerous school districts and is sought for his expertise on sociocultural issues affecting English learners. "The blessing of my work comes from seeing my students become excellent teachers and administrators who serve as effective advocates for all students," Zartman said. He earned a master's degree in education from UTEP in 1978 and went on to earn a doctoral degree in social, multicultural, and bilingual foundations of education from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
