Learning for Life

In 2015, in celebration of its 100th anniversary, the Orlean Beeson School of Education established the Learning for Life Award to honor outstanding education alumni that have made a significant impact in the lives of others.

The mission of the education school is, “to guide, develop and challenge students academically, professionally, personally and spiritually; to prepare leaders who will positively influence and shape society.” Additionally, one of the school’s core values is that learning is a life-long commitment. Two statements that the Learning for Life Award celebrates and chosen honorees emulate.

Although their career paths may be different, recipients are all similar in the way that they have made a notable influence in their respective fields of study.
