Goushey is an assistant professor in English at Wildwood. White is assistant professor in sociology at Meramec.  Polta is associate professor in radiology technology at Forest Park, and Curry is the academic dean of business and human development at Florissant Valley.

The Governor’s Awards are presented in conjunction with MCCA to faculty statewide for their effective teaching and advising, service to the school community, commitment to high standards of excellence and success in nurturing student achievement. Recipients are chosen by their respective institutions.
