SIUE faculty member cited by his alma mater
ROLLA, Mo. – Tim Schoenecker, a member of the faculty in the School of Business at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville for the last 22 years, is one of six former student-athletes from Missouri University of Science and Technology inducted into this year’s class of the Academy of Miner Athletics.
The academy recognizes alumni who have brought honor to the university’s athletic department through their accomplishments on the playing field, in their careers and through community leadership. Academy members support the department through coordinated gifts of time, experience and money. The Academy of Miner Athletics was founded in October 2011 with its first induction class of 33 individuals.
At SIUE, Schoenecker has spent six years as associate dean and interim dean. Schoenecker competed in track and field as a sprinter and was part of two school-record relay teams during his Miner career. He later returned to campus to attend graduate school and served as a volunteer assistant coach for Dewey Allgood.
Schoenecker earned a bachelor of science degree in engineering management from Missouri S&T in 1984, the same year he received the Gale Bullman Award.
