Mark Phew, who has been part of the Boise State educational staff since 1977, has been named a Boise State Distinguished Professor.

Phew has served as a mentor to numerous students through his career, has taken part in many projects over the years and was responsible for founding and directing the Center for Applied Archeological Science and the Desert Studies Institute.

In 1990, Phew assisted with the implementation of the Department of Anthropology at Boise State, and over his years at the college he has been the recipient of over $2.7 million through grant funds.

Within Idaho, the subjects of Phew's studies have been closely tied to the history of the land, especially in relation to the Snake River Plain.

The award ceremony will take place on April 7 at 4 p.m. in the Imagination Lab of Boise State.
