Scholars Selected for Hall of Fame Scholarship


Two adult education students have been selected as recipients of the James P. Pappas Scholarship on behalf of the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame. Susan Hanny at the University of Central Oklahoma and Kameron (Kami) Levin at Columbia University were chosen out of XX other scholars.

Hanny is currently working on her master’s degree in adult and higher education at the University of Central Oklahoma, expecting to graduate in May 2018. She has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Western State Colorado University. Levin is working on her doctoral degree in adult learning and leadership at Columbia University, with a projected graduation in 2019.

“Both of these students are prime examples of the bright future of adult education,” Pappas said. “Their hard work and dedication to the field are admirable and they are very deserving of this scholarship.”

The James P. Pappas Scholarship honors Dr. James P. Pappas for his tireless dedication to and support of the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame and for his far-reaching contributions to the field of continuing education. The scholarship is an annual award made by the Hall of Fame to an adult education major who is working toward the completion of a higher education degree. Pappas, executive director of the Hall of Fame and a member of the 1997 induction class, has been a member of the Hall of Fame’s board of directors from its beginning. He is an international leader in adult and continuing education with more than 40 years of experience transforming the lives of nontraditional students.
