COA’s Lucretia White Earns National Recognition

At College of The Albemarle (COA), faculty matters, and Lucretia White is making a significant impact on her academic institution as a committed scholar.

On Thursday, Feb. 22, White was honored with the “Gladys R. Shaw Outstanding Service to Developmental Education Students” Award, sponsored by the National Association for Developmental Education (NADE) at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

She received a plaque, a $500 stipend and an invitation to present at the next annual conference. This award recognizes long-term service to developmental education students by a NADE member.

White was nominated for this award by the North Carolina Association for Developmental Education (NCADE) and contributes the award to the coinciding “2017 Hilda P. Barrow Outstanding Developmental Educator of the Year” Award she received at the end of last year.

Gladys Reed Shaw was a profound advocate of college access and developmental education. She centered her professional career on students and the professionals who served them.

“I appreciate the recognition from my peers. This award is truly a blessing and an honor for the college and me,” said White.
