By Ben Lawson, media assistant
A professional association for educators recently recognized a Northwest Missouri State University staff member for her work in helping prospective teachers achieve their certifications.
Phi Delta Kappa International presented Dr. Carla Mebane, alternative certification and dual credit director for Northwest Outreach, with the award for Outstanding Teacher Preparation at its annual awards banquet May 3.
Mebane was selected for the award based on her local impact for teacher preparation, Phi Delta Kappa President Jeanette Westfall said.
“Dr. Mebane has worked diligently in northwest Missouri to help teachers certify,” said Westfall, principal of Benton High School in St. Joseph. “I can speak to that support myself, as she has worked closely with several teachers in the St. Joseph School District.”
Phi Delta Kappa International supports education, particularly public education, as the cornerstone of democracy. Its members consist of pre-collegiate prospective educators and teachers in higher education and K-12 schools.
