The Kenneth G. Elzinga Distinguished Teaching Award annually honors one or more faculty members for outstanding contributions to economics education. Nominees for the award are submitted by department chairs from across the South. The annual meeting is one of the largest regional economics conferences in the country.
Carilli was recognized by nearly 1,800 of his peers for his dynamic teaching, particularly of Economics 101. Of Carilli's students, many of them have pursued graduate studies in the field. At the meeting this year were Hampden-Sydney Professors Justin Isaacs '95 and Geoffrey Lea '04, Radford University Professor Tom Duncan '05, Ferris State Professor Alex Cartwright '13, and current PhD students Dylan DelliSanti '14, Perry Ferrell '15, John Kroencke '16, Adam Witham '16, and Almantas Palubinskas '16. Also in attendance were fellow H-SC Professors Indu Khurana (with whom Sean Stimpson '19 presented research) and Trey Carson.
