WBC Academic Award Named in Weaver’s Honor


Dr. RoseMary Weaver of Pocahontas was honored at the Williams Baptist College Academic Awards Banquet, held Thursday, April 11, on the Williams campus.

WBC’s P-4 Early Childhood Education Award was renamed the Dr. RoseMary Weaver Early Childhood Education Award for her efforts in the field.  The honor was bestowed upon Dr. Weaver due to her early work and leadership in the Williams Teacher Education Program.

Dr. Weaver was a professor and chair of the Williams Teacher Education Program from 1989-2001.  She now serves as the curriculum director for the Pocahontas School District.

“Dr. Weaver had very high standards for the Williams Teacher Education Program and those standards are still in place today,” said Charlotte Wheeless, assistant professor of Education at WBC.

“In choosing to name the P-4 Education Award in her honor, we considered the many teachers she has trained over the years and the positive classroom experiences their students have had.  With that considered, Dr. Weaver’s impact on the field of education in this community has been immeasurable,” Wheeless stated.

Dr. Brad Baine, current chair of the WTEP, added, “In the Williams P-4 Early Childhood Education program, we strive to instill in our students the importance of our conceptual framework, which is integrating, caring and communicating as an educator.  As a department, we feel that Dr. RoseMary Weaver is a living example of an educator who accomplishes our conceptual framework at the highest level.”
