Cook's Corner

Welcome to our newest members of this year's John H. Cook Society, all of whom are near and dear to our heart — each one is a faculty or staff member of the School of Education. We'd like to thank the following people for their leadership and their commitment to education:

Dr. Jewell Cooper and Dr. Colleen Fairbanks, whose gifts in support of the Teacher Education/Higher Education Alumni Endowment Fund are helping to create an endowment to support the greatest needs of the TEHE Department in a permanent way.
Dr. Jim Carmichel, for his gift in support of the Library and Information Sciences Alumni Endowment Fund. With this gift, Dr. Carmichel honors the memory of his former colleague, Dr. Lee Shiflett, as well as supports the greatest needs of the LIS Department in a permanent way.

Nancy and Tommy Teague, for their continuing support of the Hooked on Books program which provides opportunities for children from selected schools to purchase books for their own libraries and work with “reading buddies” from the SOE to develop a life-long love of reading.
