We would like to congratulate Rebecca Alvarado-Alcantar for winning the December and January Core Values Dean’s parking spot award. Rebecca was nominated for the award by exemplifying one or more of the Core Values of the College of Education.
“Rebecca is a doctoral student in the Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders and she displays the quality of leadership. She is committed to her future as a leader in special education in her research and learning.
