Posted on April 01 2010

Shhh...don't tell Rebekah that I'm doing this or she'll have my head.

No, not really.

Today is a special day for us here at TAA. Rebekah Richards, a TAA Founder and our Chief Academic Officer, is receiving the 2010 OUTSTANDING YOUNG PROFESSIONAL award in the Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services at Utah State University.

Rebekah is an alum of USU, having earned her M.S. in Instructional Design and Technology there. She continues to be at the forefront of design and development of innovative online learning solutions, and I am thrilled that USU has recognized her achievements in the field.

Rebekah and I have been partners in the creation of TAA from its earliest days, and it's an honor to work with such an intelligent, capable professional who is so passionate about The American Academy's mission.

Please join me in congratulating her on a job well done!
