amela Gardner, assistant professor of nursing, was announced as the 2007 Educator of the Year at the 18th annual banquet April 10.

Gardner began her career at Truman in 2000. She received her B.S.N. from Fitchburg State College and her M.S.N. from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Her primary areas of expertise are child-family and maternal-neonatal nursing.

This year more than 120 students nominated a record-breaking 82 faculty members for the Educator of the Year award. The eight-member student committee first narrowed the group down to 12 semi-finalists and then to six finalists. Finally, after reviewing the written responses by the nominated faculty members, getting input from the students in their classes and observing the faculty members in their classrooms, the committee selected this year’s honoree.

Students from Student Senate, the Pershing Society and Phi Kappa Phi serve on the Educator of the Year committee.
