University field supervisor MaryAnn Bentley nominated Evans for this honor, and a committee of six SFA elementary education faculty members, who reviewed teaching videos and additional materials, selected her to receive the award.
Evans will graduate SFA this month with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies. Her specialization is teaching fourth through eighth grade. She completed her student teaching at Center Middle School in the Center Independent School District with eighth-grade teacher Anita Williams serving as her mentor.
