Action IMPACT 2009 Annual Report




Greetings, We are pleased to share with you the 2009 OSU College of Education (CoE) Annual Report, a publication highlighting the many accomplishments of our faculty, students, staff, and alumni over the past year. These accomplishments exemplify the VISION of the College to always serve as a recognized leader for education-related academic programs that are relevant and meaningful to meet the demands and opportunities of the 21st century. Based on this vision, the College and our educational partners engage in thoughtful and strategic ACTION on campus and in communities. Ultimately, our goal is to create a positive and significant IMPACT on the quality of life for individuals in our state and beyond. In this publication, we provide summaries about the CoE’s vision, action, and impact related to our research, teaching, and service/outreach activities. At the same time, we would like to acknowledge that it is impossible to adequately capture the day-to-day impact of faculty, students, staff, and alumni as they go about their work. Here are a few examples from this past year: • A Therapeutic Recreation senior-level intern wrote a community re-engagement plan for incarcerated youth as part of her practicum; this plan is now being successfully implemented by the agency. • A CoE faculty member worked carefully with legislators to create a bill, passed last year, to ensure high quality special education teachers in the state. • A CoE alumnae served as superintendent of one of the largest school districts in the nation and is credited with significantly improving the academic achievement of her district’s students. • A CoE academic advisor was instrumental in pursuing a grant for a laptop computer for a student who had lost his belongings in a house fire. Hopefully, these few examples convey the commitment we have to making a difference across our fields and areas of responsibilities. We also would like to acknowledge the impact of an important group of individuals who supported the work of the College. This past year brought especially difficult financial challenges for many of our students to pay for their higher education costs. For many, the scholarships they received from our generous donors determined whether they could continue to pursue their degrees at OSU. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to give our greatest thanks to the individuals who provided financial assistance for our students and their programs. These donors are recognized in the scholarship and development sections in this report. We hope you enjoy reading about the OSU College of Education and do not hesitate to contact me with questions or comments. Be sure to note the last page of the report that provides a listing of all majors offered in the College accompanied by contact information. We hope you will join us in our future endeavors and look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely,

Pamela Fry Dean College of Education

International Student Teaching Opportunities Since the program’s inception in 2003, more than 100 students have completed student teaching internships abroad, in either Costa Rica or England, including 14 teacher candidates in 2009. The opportunity is available for elementary, secondary or K-12 teacher candidates. COE students must apply for the opportunity and go through a selective interview process. The international program is similar in length and structure to what a student completing a student teaching internship in the U.S. experiences. Students are paired with cooperating teachers who are certified and recommended by their principals. The international option is aimed at broadening candidates’ perspectives on education to include local, national and global views.

London, England

“The mentor teachers are amazing. Most are certified in several areas and are passionate about what they do. I would definitely recommend student teaching abroad. Going into it, I didn’t know any of the other OSU students, but I was able to make lifelong friendships.”

Anthony Biamont

“My professors encouraged me to push for a scholarship and I was honored and affirmed to receive the Patricia Cornforth scholarship. As a single mom working hard to pursue my degree, the financial support has been invaluable. At OSU, I learned so much and feel like I found my calling (to work in therapeutic recreation).”

“This aid means so much to me. I want to truly impact the lives of others and be a mentor to the students I teach. A few weeks before I moved to Stillwater, my stepfather was forced to retire from his job because of health troubles. With my mother earning income for the family, I was worried about how the family I was leaving at home would be able to financially afford the costs of everyday expenses, let alone the cost of my education. The thing that eventually reassured me was the receipt of financial aid.”

Dean Pamela Fry congratulates Amanda Baker as she receives the Patricia Cornforth scholarship.

Associate Dean Bob Davis presents Anthony Biamont with an Alumni Association Scholarship.

Why I Give . . . Recently, the College has received a number of scholarship gifts. Donors shared what compels them to give to OSU and the College of Education: John and Caroline Linehan of Stillwater, pledged $100,000 over the next five years to support their current scholarship in education and establish a new scholarship in business.

“By financially supporting Oklahoma State University and the College of Education, we make a difference in the preparation of current and future educators, which in turn, supports the quality of education in our schools.” Caroline and John Linehan

Dr. Jerry Burson, a 2004 College of Education Hall of Fame inductee, and his wife Mary have provided a gift of $25,000 to complete a $100,000 endowment of their aviation and secondary education-English scholarships.

Mary and Jerry Burson

“We believe that teachers at all levels have a very significant influence on people’s lives and on society.” Kristin (Harry) Vermillion, a two-time OSU College of Education graduate, chose to honor three family members through a planned gift to the College of Education from her estate. The scholarship, which will support a future teacher, is to be named in memory of her parents Robert and Francille Harry and husband Jon Vermillion.

Robert Harry and Kristin Vermillion

“My education at OSU allowed me to have a career in the wonderful world of teaching. The success in my life was a result of faith in God, my family’s encouragement, and my experience at OSU; I feel very blessed.” William R. and Billie D. Buckles of Alva provided a gift of $50,000 gift to endow a scholarship to assist students from northwest Oklahoma in becoming teachers.

“We truly value education and know that it is one of the most important things we can provide to young people.” Billie and Bill Buckles

Randall and Carol White of Bixby pledged $50,000 toward establishing a new scholarship in Reading and Literacy education.

Carol and Randall White

“We share a passion for education and have a tremendous sense of pride to be a part of this transformational period at Oklahoma State University. We have witnessed amazing changes at our University and we feel blessed we can be a part of impacting its future.”

2009 College of Education Annual Report



ALUMNI AWARDS Hall of Fame Induction into the Oklahoma State University College of Education Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed by the College. Inductees are chosen by a committee of representatives of the College’s Alumni Association, Associates, students, faculty and administration.

Mrs. Belden accepted the award on behalf of her late husband, reading professor Bernard Belden, who was inducted posthumously.

Rising Star The Rising Star Award annually recognizes young alumni whose lives and achievements demonstrate promise of future leadership and bring distinction to the College.

VanDorn is a two-time College of Education graduate with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s in natural and applied sciences. “Kristy is a master educator.

The students in her class feel comfortable and safe to experiment and dive into the learning process in science. Her ability to connect with students and her talent of teaching simple or complex concepts is superior.” Tracy Skinner, Deer Creek Middle School Principal
