Stephens alumnae seem to be all over the news today!
I’ll start with Laura Knox, an education instructor at Arkansas State University-Mountain Home. Knox was recently selected Faculty Member of the Year by her peers! That’s a huge honor, so kudos to Laura!
Before Arkansas State University got her, Knox earned a bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in public relations at Stephens. She earned her master’s certification in elementary education K-6 at the University of Colorado-Denver. Read more about her on the KAIT-TV website.
My next informant is The Star Gazer, the online news source of McCluer North High School. Staff Reporter Brandon Woods tells us that Stephens alumna Sharon Bartlett is retiring after a 29-year career with the Ferguson-Florissant School District. After earning her associates degree in arts here, she later attended the University of Kentucky to major in elementary education, Woods tells us. Also from the story, we learn that “over the course of her hardworking years, she has built a solid rapport with many of the staff members here.”Congrats to Sharon–sounds like she is well deserving of retirement!
And, finally, former Stephens student Tiffany Green is making her Muny debut this season and will play Madame Thénardier in Les Misérables, BroadwayWorld.com tells us. After attending Stephens College, Green made her feature film debut in Hairspray, starring John Travolta. According to BWW, the Muny’s Les Misérables was a “highly anticipated cast,” so kudos to Tiffany!
