Faculty at Cal State Bakersfield accepted an award on behalf of a professor who died last week.
Political science professor Stanley Clark died April 12 after battling cancer.
Originally from Springfield, Ohio, Dr. Clark made his way to CSUB and went to teach for 44 years, developing dozens of courses.
17 News spoke to Dr. Clark back in 2012 while covering how state politicians approached the topic of voter fraud.
Dr. Clark was selected to be inducted into the Faculty Hall of Fame.
The Department of Political Science accepted the award Tuesday morning in his place.
