Watson Joins Spring Alumni Dinner at WCE

Sunday, June 05, 2016

The Watson College of Education Alumni Chapter hosted their annual spring dinner on Tuesday, May 17 in the education building on campus.

Sueanne McKinney ’82 and Frances Boney Bessellieu ’82, ’99M (posthumously) were recognized as the Watson College of Education’s Distinguished Alumni of the year. These alumni were chosen as the 2016 award recipients based on their outstanding professional achievements and contributions to the field of education.

After dinner, attendees experienced MarineQuest’s life-size inflatable whale "classroom" named Watson. Youth Programs Director Sue Kezios and MarineQuest science and research specialist Harris Muhlstein demonstrated how the whale allows teachers and children to diagnose sick whales from the inside out. The attendees enjoyed the evening and look forward to the next WCE Alumni dinner in the fall.
