Dr. Joseph Milner was honored for his career contributions and service to the field of English education at a session entitled Eight Great American YA Novelists at the annual conference of the National Council of Teachers of English in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, November 16, 2012.
After serving as one of four keynote speakers for the session, Dr. Milner was honored in the closing moments by the session co-chairs: Dr. Alan Brown of Wake Forest University and Dr. Carol Pope of North Carolina State University. Many current and former students and colleagues were in attendance as Dr. Milner received a standing ovation at the conclusion of the presentation.
Dr. Milner will be awarded with a token of appreciation later in the spring semester. If you would like to contribute a personal message, please contact Dr. Alan Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Professor Joan Mitchell (email@example.com).
