Human Development and Education faculty and staff receive awards

The College of Human Development and Education presented awards to several faculty and staff members during their Celebration of Excellence. Awards were presented in the following categories:

Ann Ragan, lecturer of apparel, design and hospitality management; WooMi Phillips, assistant professor of apparel, design and hospitality management; Joel Hektner, associate professor of child development and family Science; and Jill Nelson, assistant professor in the School of Education, received the Robert and Patty Hendrickson Faculty Development Award. Robert and Patty Hendrickson established a faculty development fund several years ago to assist faculty in their professional growth and development with the idea that this opportunity could have an impact on students and other faculty.

The James Lebedeff Endowed Professorship was awarded to Kara Wolfe, associate professor of apparel, design and hospitality management, and Brenda Hall, associate professor in the School of Education. Evelyn Morrow Lebedeff established the award to recognize faculty who have been judged to be outstanding teachers and researchers.

The College of Human Development and Education Graduate Student Mentor Award, established this year, was created by the Human Development and Education Research Support Team and was awarded to Greg Sanders, associate dean of the College of Human Development and Education. The award recognizes faculty for their positive impact on graduate students.

Funding for the following awards are provided through the Mabel Wenzel Debing Memorial Fund endowment, which was established to recognize and reward faculty and staff who contribute to the teaching, research and service of the college:

Christi McGeorge, associate professor of child development and family science, received the Exceptional Contributions to Research award. Rachelle Vettern, assistant professor in the School of Education and Center for 4-H Youth Development, received the Exceptional Contributions as an Emerging Researcher award. Brenda Hall, associate professor in the School of Education, received the Exceptional Contribution to Professional Development award. Deb Pankow, assistant professor of child development and family science and Extension, was the recipient of the Exceptional Contributions through Creative Approaches to Teaching. Pam Hansen, associate professor of health, nutrition and exercise sciences, received the Exceptional Contribution to Service and Outreach.

Brenda Vertin from Extension 4-H and Marie Champagne from the School of Education received staff awards for their exceptional support for instructional, research and service activity.
