Berry College Professor Mary Outlaw was chosen as this year's 2013 Outstanding Service to the Profession of Teaching award recipient.
Outlaw, a senior lecturer emeritus in the education department and director of field experiences and student teaching, received the outstanding service award from the Berry Charter Fellows and the Charter School of Education and Human Sciences. Recipients are chosen annually based on their ability to exemplify the education of the head, heart, and hands and who have been teaching for 30 years or more. Outlaw began teaching in 1976. She has a doctorate degree in education from the University of Georgia, a master's degree in education from Northern Illinois University, and a bachelor's degree from Palm Beach Atlantic University.
"Dr. Outlaw has a long and distinguished career in education. Her teaching exemplifies the Berry College mission 'not to be ministered unto but to minister,'" said Charter School of Education and Human Sciences Dean Jackie McDowell.
