Lindsey Receives Reinhardt College's Jane England Faculty Award for Excellence
A. Lindsey, associate professor of education in the Price School of
Education, received the 2007 Jane England Faculty Award for Excellence
from Reinhardt College on April 18, 2007. Lindsey has worked at the
College since January 1974 and lives in Waleska, Ga.
award is named for a long-time Reinhardt faculty member who retired in
May 2001 and passed away this past January. England was a professor of
history and political science for 31 years at the College. She also
served in numerous leadership roles, including advisor to the student
newspaper and chairperson of the faculty. Upon her retirement, Reinhardt
established this annual faculty award, along with a scholarship fund,
in her honor.
Lindsey was nominated by her peers for the award and
selected as the recipient by a three-member committee. In her 33 years
of service at Reinhardt, she has taught various education and psychology
courses. Lindsey is presently the field experience program director for
the Price School of Education, and she teaches several education
classes. A native of Nashville, Tenn., Lindsey obtained her bachelor's
degree from Florence State University (now the University of North
Alabama) before earning a master's of education in early childhood
education at The University of Georgia in 1973.
"It is so
meaningful to me because it is the Jane England Award, and she stood for
excellence in teaching and in service," Lindsey said. "She contributed
so much to the College by upholding high academic standards and by
really doing an outstanding job of service with our students."
