Philpott, Rose Win Diamond Jubilee Awards
October 1, 2012
It was a banner week for the Faculty of Education, as two members of the faculty collected awards for outstanding contributions to their respective fields.
Dr. David Philpott and Dr. Andrea Rose were both recipients of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal. Dr. Philpott received his award for outstanding contribution to vulnerable children and families, while Dr. Rose received her award for an outstanding career as a music educator and community leader.
The commemorative medal, created to mark the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's ascension to the throne, is a tangible way for Canada to honor significant contributions by Canadians. Sixty thousand citizens will receive the award for work in various fields.
Most recently Dr. Philpott, who joined Memorial in 2000 and became a full professor in 2011, has been involved in Memorial University's Teaching and Learning Framework by co-chairing the research and development team for a new First Year Success Program for academically at-risk students.
Dr. Rose, with the Faculty since 1990, has spent time furthering music education interests on a local, national, an international level. She has spent the past two years as an active member on the working groups for both the Teaching and Learning and Public Engagement Frameworks at Memorial University.
The Faculty of Education would like to proudly congratulate both professors on their incredible achievements.
