COE Faculty member Dr. Kathryn Ohle has been selected as one of the Alaska Center for the Book’s winners for the 2016 Contributions to Literacy in Alaska (CLIA) awards!
Over the past 23 years, Alaska Center for the Book has presented CLIA awards to more than 75 people and agencies who have made significant contributions to literacy, the literary arts, and preservation of the spoken and written word in Alaska. Winners have included teachers, librarians, authors, tutors, organizations and others dedicated to making the world a better place through the gift of language. The selection committee was impressed by the program Kathryn led to provide children’s books in Alaska Native languages via Unite for Literacy. As one committee member said, “She saw the need and created the project and steered it to success. That’s the kind of thinking and initiative we want to honor.”
