This year, Betty Edouard has had to balance her full-time job, her academic load and the added challenges navigating both spaces during a global pandemic.
“My goals were to exceed at graduate school and do my best at work,” she said. “I appreciate all my professors for the knowledge they’ve given me. I could not imagine attending graduate school in a pandemic without them.”
Edouard was recognized for her academic success at the college’s annual Honors Day Ceremony on April 22.
She is the 2021 recipient of the Outstanding M.A.T. Student Award in Mathematics and Science, which is given to an outstanding student in the master of arts in teaching program for academic achievement, teaching expertise, community service and a commitment to excellence.
“This award means the world to me,” Edouard said. “When I received the e-mail about this award, I felt so valued and appreciated. It’s great to be recognized for something you’ve worked so hard for.”
