Mary Stotler Award

Mary Stotler

Our Profession's Dropped Ball

At the 2016 CIT Conference, there was no one honored for the Mary Stotler Award. We are checking into why this was the case; however, we also want to make sure that it doesn't happen again.

Please start thinking about what colleagues you feel are deserving of this honor in 2018.  It is an important opportunity for us to reflect on those people who have helped create the foundation for us to raise the level of our teaching and practice.

Thanks to those of you who have taken the time and effort to nominate a colleague. Let's have more of us take the initiative in two years to ensure that someone is honored.
