Harriett 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.
The $500 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."
