Outstanding Leaders in Education

December 6th, 2004 by Adam

Mary Campbell (Undergraduate Studies) and Dennise Maslakowski (Graduate Studies) were recognized as outstanding leaders in education at a reception at a the N.H. Women in Educational Leadership Conference in Concord in November.

Mary was recognized for her service to the Newfound Area School Board ( 16 years) and to Plymouth State University (30 years). One alumnus wrote, “Her contribution as an advisor and as a friend to the students of Plymouth State University is one that cannot be matched. Mary’s leadership and outstanding contributions year after year go well beyond the call of duty, which should provide a role model for everyone in the education field.”

Dennise was recognized for more than 20 years of teaching, advising and leading Plymouth State University. The presenter said, “Dennise’s varied background as an elementary, middle school, special education, reading specialist and ESL teacher has provided her undergraduate and graduate students with a wealth of experience and understanding of children and learning. … Dennise’s energy does not stop at Plymouth State University, but extends to the many school districts she has worked with on creating literacy curriculum. Each May, Dennise celebrates the graduate students at Plymouth State as they walk across the stage and achieve their goals and degrees.”
