*At the 2010 CCCC Conference in Louisville, the TETYC Best Article of the Year Award Selection Committee requested that the TYCA Executive Committee consider renaming this award for a long-time TYCA member who has contributed to the scholarship and mission of TYCA and the Teaching of English in the Two-Year College journal. The TYCA EC approved the change. A Committee was formed. They looked at numerous candidates and unanimously nominated former TETYC editor Mark Reynolds for the honor.
