Nebraska Writing Project
2013 Administrator Certificate of Recognition Presented to Vann Price
Transcript of presentation speech by Robert Brooke, NeWP Director
We recognize Vann Price for her support of Nebraska Writing Project programs and partnerships at North Star High School in Lincoln, Nebraska. Dr. Price is nominated by Melanie Farber, Chair of English at North Star; Tara Moore, English teacher at North Star, and Susan Martens of UNL’s preservice English program. They write:
“Vann has been supportive of all kinds of NeWP “extension” work—whether that’s taking students on mini-writing marathons or sponsoring partnership programs with UNL pre-service teachers. When approached about participating with the Nebraska Writing Project and the Embedded Institute, Vann was immediately on board. She helped to put together the necessary documentation and data to help us secure the grant and was willing to help find extra money to pay participants if that was going to be necessary. She has not only allowed us to use some building PLC time to get our work accomplished, she has granted participants building staff development hours because she recognizes the immense commitment of her teachers. As a former Summer Institute participant herself, Vann Price knows the professional growth that comes from participating in anything related to the National Writing Project.
