Georgia (Apr 17, 2001) — Kennesaw State professor selected for Fellowship
Kurt Daw‚ chair of the Kennesaw State University theater department‚ has been selected
for the American Council on Education's 2001−2002 Fellowship program to further develop
his administrative abilities. Thirty−three fellows were selected this year in a national
competition. Nearly all of the 1‚279 previous fellows have advanced to positions as
college presidents‚ provosts‚ vice presidents or deans.
"I would like to be a college president one day‚" Daw says. "Growing up on a sheep farm in Idaho‚ I learned the value of education and how far it can take you."
Next year‚ he will be released from his regular duties to attend seminars and to be mentored by administrators at another institution. Daw also hopes to work closely with Kennesaw State University President Betty L. Siegel‚ who nominated Daw for the fellowship‚ on the Northwest Georgia Crescent Alliance initiatives.
