CEHD Professor Honored With Prestigious Award

Dr. Cheryl Craig, professor of teacher education and the Houston Endowment, Inc.’s Endowed Chair of Urban Education, is the latest inductee into her alma mater’s Wall of Fame. The Brandon University Alumni Association (BUAA) presented the award to Dr. Craig during the university’s Homecoming celebration in October.

Brandon University, founded in 1899, promotes excellence in teaching, research and scholarship, and educates students so that they can make a meaningful difference as engaged citizens and leaders.

The Wall of Fame Award is presented to Brandon University alumni who have made significant achievements in their career on a provincial, national, or international level bringing honor and prestige to the university.

“It was one of those sweet moments when life comes around full circle. The award made me even more grateful for my strong undergraduate education which laid the foundation for my equally strong graduate education and later successes in career and life,” explained Dr. Craig. “The award became even more special when I learned how few people had received it and that I was only the second female to be honored.”

Dr. Craig’s research regarding the influence of context on teachers’ knowledge developments, their communities of knowing and their curriculum making regularly appears in education’s most esteemed journals.

“Every year, it is humbling to read through the outstanding accomplishments of Brandon University alumni who are nominated for our awards. In their work and in their life, they have really left their mark. What struck me this year was really the depth of commitment that each display,” said Carla Eisler, BU Alumni Officer.

Dr. Craig was also featured as a keynote speaker for a conference at Brandon University in October titled Mental Health on the Prairies Conference: A Focus on Transitions.
