Clarke College is pleased to announce that the College was recently recognized with three awards from the Iowa Association for Lifelong Learning (IALL).
Maggie Curry, TimeSaver Program coordinator, was named the IALL 2007 Rookie of the Year. This award recognizes an individual who has been employed in the field of adult education for two years or less and has exhibited outstanding service to the adult-student population. Curry received a bachelor of arts degree in communication with honors from Clarke in 2004 and is now pursuing a master of arts in higher education program at the College of Iowa.
Curry’s husband and Clarke graduate David Curry, was named the 2007 Outstanding Adult Learner. He graduated with honors from the TimeSaver Program in 2005 with a bachelor of arts degree in communication. He is currently pursuing a master of business administration degree at Clarke.
Clarke’s physical therapy department was named the recipient of the IALL Creative Program Award for the second consecutive year. This year, the award was given for an ongoing program called “The Hot Seat: Challenging the Critical Thinking and Problem Solving Skills in Physical Therapy Students.” The program pairs physical therapy students with field practitioners for the purpose of examining advanced case studies. Students present cases and field questions from the physical therapy professionals as a means of strengthening their critical-thinking skills in unique patient situations.
