Marie LeJeune

Marie LeJeune, associate professor of teacher education, with whom TRI works on the HighFive grant, has been awarded the very first T.H. Gentle Endowment.

“It’s important in my work to continually be connected to what teachers are doing in K-12 schools,” she said.

According to the May 6, 2015 article in the Polk County Itemizer-Observer, "Thomas Gentle, for whom the endowment is named, came to Western’s campus more than 100 years ago to revitalize the teacher preparation program, and built programs and a faculty committed to excellence in this area."

We at TRI are very excited for Marie, and congratulate her on the well deserved honor.
