Professor Sylvia López, who holds the Harry C. Moore Professor of Modern Languages and Literatures, and teaches Spanish, was nominated for Beloit’s highest teaching honor by a committee of former Underkofler recipients and her students, who surrounded her in support when she was officially recognized in April. The Alliant Energy Foundation, a public utility holding company headquartered in Madison, Wis., created and funds the teaching award, named for a longtime Alliant Energy senior executive. The prize is awarded to outstanding professors teaching within the company’s service area.
