Dr. Felix Tweraser, Chair of Foreign Languages and Literatures, ran the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon in January in California and finished in just over four hours. That's quite an accomplishment!
Please congratulate Alex Posivenko, of Housing and Residence Life. Posivenko was in the inaugural class of Certified Auxiliary Services Professionals, a program of the National Association of College Auxiliary Services. He passed a comprehensive exam assessing skills in management, leadership, marketing, communications, business relations and student services, among others. NACAS is the largest auxiliary services support organization serving higher education.
Kudos to the teachers in the Department of Collaborative Support and Intervention:
Dr. Mark Parrish, assistant professor of counselor education. He was a co-author of “Native American adult lifespan perspectives: Where power moves” in the textbook “Mental health across racial groups: Lifespan perspectives.”
Dr. Karen Harris Brown, assistant professor of speech-language pathology, for her recent feature article “Project servicing English language learners (SELL): A professional learning experience initiative” in Advance for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. The article was reprinted in October in the Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention issue. Dr. Meg Cooper, associate professor of special education, and Dr. Jessica Bucholz, assistant professor of special education, both for their recent presentations at the annual conference for TASH (formerly known as the Association for Persons with Severe Disabilities) in Atlanta. Cooper presented “Teaching elementary students with severe disabilities to participate in shared story readings.” They also presented, with S. Anderson, “Social stories decrease aggression in students with significant developmental disabilities or autism.” Bucholz was a co-presenter of “Life after school: Social, work, and educational lives of adults with disabilities.”
Also congratulate, Dr. Ravic Ringlaben, associate professor of special education. He was among the UWG faculty who presented “If We Build It, Will They Come? Transitioning a F2F Doctoral Program to Online Delivery” at the annual conference of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology held in Jacksonville, Fl.
Ooops! We missed one last month. Kudos to: Angie Wheelus, in the Counseling and Career Development Center; Ronald Alexander, in College Student Affairs; Dr. Corey Rumann and Dr. Michael Keim, both assistant professors in the Department of Collaborative Support and Intervention; the folks of Prevent@UWG; and everyone else who helped pull off UWG’s participation in the first Remembrance Day National Roll Call. Volunteers read the names of more than 6,300 servicemen and women who have died in Afghanistan and Iraq since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Passersby also signed 120 holiday cards for troops still in Afghanistan. UWG was one of more than 160 schools across the country that participated in the Veteran’s Day event.
Kudos features UWG faculty and staff articles and book publications, conference attendance and presentations, grants, organizational leadership and awards. E-mail your news to the Campus Chronicle editor.
