Dr. Cindy Whaley Earns “Professor of the Year”

The Minnesota Academy of Reading (MAR) named Dr. Cindy Whaley DMLC ’76 (education) Professor of the Year for her contributions to the literacy community of Minnesota.

Due to our January blizzard, Dr. Whaley could not accept the award in person at the MAR Policies and Issues Symposium at Hamline University, but she did utilize Google Hangout to speak to the group and present her keynote address, “The Lifelong Journey of a Successful Reader.”

Whaley has previously won the “Celebrate Literacy Award” from MAR (2012) and the “Community Support Award” for New Ulm Public Schools (2015) in recognition of her work with iTutoring.
