Joan Milnes Receives Higher Education Leader of the Year Award

September 2, 2009

Please join me in congratulating Joan Milnes, Montserrat’s Director of Internships and Career Services, for receiving the Higher Education Leader of the Year Award from the National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE).

The award is made in recognition of Joan’s use of experiential learning at Montserrat.  In her letter of nomination, Kate Moore, Director North America, EUSA-Academic Internship Programs, writes: “This internship program has broken the boundaries of traditional thinking that art and employment are incompatible.”

Joan, we are proud of your work developing the Montserrat Internship program, of your dedication to each intern you place, and of building a professional profile that helps expand the national reputation of Montserrat.  It’s one more step on the road to premiership!
