Marshall Professor Earns Honor as Top Professor in State
The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching named Kateryna Schray as the 2014 West Virginia Professor of the Year.
Schray was among nearly 400 top professors in the United States who were finalists. Schray, an English professor, describes her teaching philosophy as “embarrassingly simple.”
Schray is in Washington D.C. today where the national and state winners are being announced and honored at an awards luncheon at the National Press Club. She also will be attending an evening congressional reception at the Folger Shakespeare Library.
Schray has been at Marshall since 1996 when she was hired as an assistant professor of English. She is the fifth professor in Marshall History to have won the prestigious award.
