The 2015 Award of Excellence for the Educational Leadership Master’s degree program went to Jennifer Massey. The award is funded by Dr. Keith Harris ’99.
Jennifer, a middle school science teacher at Mary of Nazareth Roman Catholic School in Darnestown, Maryland, already holds one degree from Hood, a BA in Psychology with a minor in Women’s Studies. For her master’s degree she came back to her alma mater, where she has maintained a perfect GPA of 4.0. In addition, Jen’s score on the School Leader’s Licensure Assessment – the “Praxis for Principals” – was among the highest ever achieved by a Hood candidate.
Jennifer has also sought out opportunities to grow beyond the requirements of her program, such as attending the Graduate School’s Professional Development Institute. This seminar series is designed for graduate students who want to enhance their marketability, sharpen their workplace skills and experience great networking and learning opportunities.
