Kyla Ward Wins Greef Award

Kyla Ward, BSE English senior, received the 2009 Robert J. Greef Award as Missouri Western's outstanding English teacher education graduate for 2008-2009. Kyla and the other outstanding graduates from around the state were honored at the state's Write to Learn Conference at Osage Beach, MO, last Friday. The Missouri Association of Teachers of English (MATE) sponsors the annual recognition ceremony for outstanding English teacher graduates; the Greef recipients received a free membership in MATE.

In nominating Kyla for the award, MWSU English professor Bill Church wrote, "Kyla is an exceptional student who enriches every class she takes with her intellect, wit, energy, and professionalism. . . . She has served our campus generously beyond the classrooms by monitoring computer labs and leading workshops for developmental writing. Furthermore, she serves unselfishly as president of our student chapter of SNCTE. She will become an outstanding teacher and mentor."

EFLJ offers hearty congratulations to Kyla!
