Judy Switzer White '82 Named as Hanover College Exceptional Educator of the Year for 2018 during Educator Induction Ceremony This Year

Our 2018 Exceptional Educator of the Year is Mrs. Judy White who graduated from Hanover in 1982 and received her Master's degree from Indiana University. Judy began her career at Batesville and then came to back to Hanover to teach at Southwestern Elementary. Mrs. White taught second grade for 20 years before taking over the Music program for the last 15 years.  Judy exemplifies the selfless attitude of exceptional educators by presenting two music programs a year each for Kindergarten to fifth grade, requiring hours of planning and despite oftentimes paying for the materials herself to have Christmas and Spring programs for her students.  She has remarked that music class may be the high point of the day for some children and and can be the switch that turns on the light for their education.  Mrs. White follows in the steps of both parents who were also teachers and is a member of the PTA and ISTA. She has participated in many additional efforts like after- school tutoring programs for struggling students. Judy has been an active member of the Hanover College Education Advisory Board for more than 12 years, as well as serving as an adjunct instructor teaching "Focus on the Arts" for Hanover elementary education students. The Educator Preparation Program faculty and staff are proud to honor Judy White as our Exception Educator for 2018.

Cambria Jones '20  Receives Janice S. Jones Memorial Scholarship Award from the American Association for Employment in Education (AAEE) 

The American Association for Employment in Education (AAEE), an organization which promotes professional standards and practices in teacher preparation and job recruitment, also recognizes a national shortage of candidates preparing for careers in certain teaching fields. This scholarship program is designed to address this need, providing an $800 award annually.  An ardent proponent of quality education for all, Janice S. Jones was well known for her lifelong advocacy of services for students with special needs. She was also recognized as an outstanding mentor for minority students studying to become teachers and was a consummate professional who exemplified the values of AAEE. The scholarship fund that bears her name exists to carry on her tradition of excellence in education and leadership. Its goal is to support emerging educators who have demonstrated promise and commitment. The 2018 winner of the scholarship is Hanover College sophomore Cambria Jones who is preparing for a career in Secondary Education to teach Mathematics and Spanish -  both areas of high need. Congratulations to Cambria!
