Southwest’s Shotwell Gets ATEA Appointment
Dr. Ada Shotwell, Dean of Liberal Arts and Education at Southwest

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

of the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE).
Other honors include being listed in Who’s Who Among Black Americans and
