Grad student wins Tutor of the Year award

Posted March 19, 2012

Suzanne Shedd, ACU Writing Center tutor and English graduate student, has won the South Central Writing Center Association's Outstanding Tutor of the Year award. The SCWCA awards a cash prize to one tutor each year, based on their service to students and their community and their excellent, innovative tutoring practices.

"The ACU Writing Center is very proud to have a tutor win this regional award," says Dr. Cole Bennett, associate professor of English and director of the ACU Writing Center. "Suzanne has the heart of a tutor, always patiently listening to and discussing writing in ways that follow best practices. She loves her job and it shows."

The South Central Writing Center Association covers four states (Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma), and directors are invited to nominate tutors who excel in writing assistance and service.

In addition to this honor, Shedd presented work at the SCWCA conference in Little Rock, Ark., Feb. 23-25. Two other English graduate students, LeAnne Moore and Christina Johnson, and Grace Hall, assistant director of the Writing Center, also gave presentations.
