KANSAS CITY -- Dr. Diana Stuart received the Missouri Community College Association’s Senior Service Award at the association’s 48th annual convention in Kansas City on Oct. 31.
The award was presented in recognition of Dr. Stuart’s service to Mineral Area College and to the mission of community colleges throughout the state.
Dr. Stuart began her career at MAC in 1988, when she came to the college as an adjunct instructor. Two years later, she became a full-time faculty member. Her first love has always been teaching English, but her most enduring legacy may be her role in starting MAC’s teacher education program. She got the program started in 1987, and continues to chair the department today.
Dr. Stuart has also been active in state and local organizations. In addition to being a faculty member in the English and education departments, she represents MAC faculty as chair of the Faculty Forum and serves on the college’s Curriculum Committee, Funding for Results Committee, and Strategic Planning Committee. She was a member of the college’s first Leadership Academy class and is a long-time supporter of the Missouri Community College Association.
