Released: 4/25/11

The following alumni will be honored at the College of Education Awards Conferral and Reception on Thursday, April 28, 2011 in the Henke Lounge at the Alumni Memorial Union. The event is part of the university-wide Alumni National Awards Weekend, a celebration honoring alumni from every college who represent the heart, sou, and spirit of Marquette.

Arnold Mitchem  

Marquette University
Alumnus of the Year Award
DR. ARNOLD L. MITCHEM, GRAD '81,
HON DEG '04

Chevy Chase, Md.

Receiving an honorary doctorate is a significant distinction, to be sure. Receiving an honorary doctorate from 10 different universities? Simply staggering. Dr. Arnold L. Mitchem — Mitch to his friends — does it all in the name of education.

     
James Wandersee  

Distinguished Alumnus of the Year Award
DR. JAMES H. WANDERSEE, GRAD '78
Baton Rouge, La.

Plants are a bit more vital to James’ existence than the average person. An active member of the Botanical Society of America, he is an award-winning botany education researcher and the W.H. “Bill” LeBlanc Alumni Association Professor at Louisiana State University.

     
Mark Rusch  

Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology Achievement Award
DR. MARK D. RUSCH, GRAD '78, '84

An associate professor and rehabilitation psychologist at the Medical College of Wisconsin, Mark also supervises doctoral students in Marquette’s College of Education, providing challenging and productive training and supervision.

David Ebert  

Young Alumnus of the Year Award
DAVID D. EBERT, ARTS '93

Dave ran track for Marquette. Now he runs numbers for the Oregon, Wis., School District — as a math teacher. He’s also president-elect of the Wisconsin Mathematics Council and a statewide representative and conference program chair.
