Southwest’s Shotwell Gets ATEA Appointment

Dr. Ada Shotwell, Dean of Liberal Arts and Education at Southwest Tennessee Community College, has been appointed to the Editorial Committee of the American Technical Education Association (ATEA). Editorial members are responsible for reviewing, selecting, and editing the articles that appear in the organization’s official news publication, ATEA Journal.

Published four times a year, the ATEA Journal contains articles, research papers, instructional manuscripts, and job opportunity and placement information. The publication also features technical and professional updates for college faculty and administrators.

Dr. Shotwell’s appointment adds yet another honor to her distinguished career. Last year, she was the recipient of the Charles O. Whitehead Outstanding Service Award, presented by the Technical Education Division of the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE).

Other honors include being listed in Who’s Who Among Black Americans and Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers. She is a life time member of both the American Technical Education Association and the Association for Career and Technical Education. In addition to her technical memberships and affiliations, Dr. Shotwell holds memberships in Phi Delta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, the Urban League, the NAACP, and Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.

ATEA is an international organization dedicated to excellence in the quality of post-secondary technical education, with emphasis on professional development. The organization’s special focus in
preparing the U.S. to thrive in an international market is reflected in its theme, “Technicians are the key to American’s ability to compete in the global marketplace.”

Southwest Tennessee Community College is a Tennessee Board of Regents institution.
