Holy Family Honors Pamela Flynn with Distinguished Teaching Award

Pamela Flynn, MFAPamela Flynn, MFA, Professor of Art and Coordinator of Fine Arts, has received the Lindback Distinguished Teaching Award, presented once every three years by Holy Family University to one faculty member for excellence in teaching.

Flynn was nominated by her peers for being a “genuine artist-educator who truly cares for her students” and for “exemplifying the University’s mission and core values,” among other attributes. In addition to being the Coordinator of Fine Arts, she teaches Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking, Ceramics, Seminar in Art History, Advanced Studio, Research Seminar and Independent Project. 

Flynn is Chair of the HFU Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and she manages the Holy Family Art Gallery, which curates and showcases artists from across the country. This year, students and other visitors to the gallery were able to experience various styles of work from Phoebe Murer, Gary Cadwallader, and Nicole Foran.

“I’m especially proud to be nominated by my peers to receive this high honor,” said Flynn. “Art unlocks the imagination and provides keys for learning. It’s a passion and a privilege for me to share new perspectives with my students and expand their world view.”

The award is made possible by the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation which makes grants in support of the award to colleges and universities primarily in the Greater Delaware Valley area.
