On March 9, the Office of Online & Adult Learning held its annual Adult Learning of the Year (ALOTY) ceremony where it recognized an outstanding adult learner and both a community partner and Wichita State partner who have supported adult learners on campus.

  • The ALOTY winner was Jennifer Johnson, a junior in the elementary education program, who is balancing a heavy course load, an internship helping a fourth grade classroom and raising three young children. Jennifer was recognized for exceling in her classes and for being a dedicated student, exemplifying what it means to be both an adult learner and a Shocker.
  • The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning received the community partner award in recognition of its continued assistance and expertise of adult students.
  • Lynette Murphy, senior director of development for the Fairmount College and Honors College at the WSU Foundation and Alumni Engagement, received the WSU partner award in honor of her going above and beyond for adult learners at WSU.
