The Knoxville News Sentinel recently featured Joshua Bienko, assistant professor of art, in this story. He was named Man of the Year for being the top fundraiser for the Knoxville Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. He brought in $17,048 of the $142,760 the local chapter raised during its recent 10-week campaign. Bienko got involved with the organization after his mother died of acute myeloid leukemia almost 19 years ago.
Bienko has been at UT since 2012.
