The LLCC Outstanding Adjunct Instructor Award recognizes exceptional classroom teaching, expertise in his/her field, and commitment to innovative teaching, assessment and student learning.

Bill Bade, dean of math and sciences at LLCC, says Armour “frequently goes out of his way to assist and support his teaching colleagues. He is a very popular instructor and is student centered, often making decisions based on what he feels will be in their best interest. He has consistently received stellar classroom and student evaluations.”
