ECWCA Members,

ECWCA Conference Preparation is in full swing.    We look forward to seeing everyone at this year’s annual conference March 28-29.  To find out more about the annual conference, visit http://writingcenter.lib.muohio.edu?page_id=3524.

Tutor Award Winners:

Thank you to all of our nominators, nominees, and applicants.  The outstanding work being done by tutors and leaders in the ECWCA region makes it hard to pick just one recipient in each category.  You are all deserving of praise and thanks for the work that you do.  However, we do have to select one prize winner in each category.  So please help me at this year’s conference  in congratulating the 2014 awardees:


Outstanding Tutor Award:  Kevin Lower, Kent State University

Tutor Leadership Award: Jenelle Dembsey, Central Michigan University 

Thanks again for being a part of this process and keep up the great work.
