The 2014 Distinguished Service Award
The 2014 IACTE Distinguished Service Award recipient is Robin White of Grandview University. Dr. White has been department chair of education at Grandview. She has provided great leadership for the program at Grandview and has served IACTE as secretary for the Executive Board for a number of years. She also organized wonderful support for the IACTE Day at the Capital including lodging in Grandview dorms for students coming from afar as well as developing materials to share with legislators. Robin has also participated in the current Chapter 79 revision work being completed with the Iowa Department of Education. Robin has truly exemplified passion, practice, commitment, and caring in all aspects of her work as a teacher educator. We will miss her when she leaves the state to retire in West Virginia.
