Wait Receives National Recognition
Educational Leadership doctoral student Courtney Wait was named a 2016 Blumberg/Pajak Scholar by the Council of Professors of Instructional Supervision (COPIS). The purposes of the national Council are to provide a professional forum, give continuing attention to and foster the development and publication of manuscripts on current research, theory, and practice in supervision of instruction. Named for Arthur Blumberg and Edward Pajak, the recognition and scholarship was created by donors to honor the memories of these two renowned instructional supervision scholars.
Wait will accept the award at the COPIS annual meeting in Tampa, FL on October 14 and will present her research at that time. Last year her work was selected for presentation at the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) conference in San Diego, CA. Wait also received a travel grant to attend the Network for Public Education Conference from TCU’s Center for Public Education. Her dissertation study involves building partnerships across cultural lines with parents and a Parent Teacher Association. Wait expects to graduate in May of 2017 with an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership.
