Education professor honored by SUNY Cortland
Dr. Judith Rink, a professor of physical education at the University of South Carolina, will receive SUNY Cortland Alumni Association’s highest honor, the Distinguished Alumni Award during that university’s alumni reunion the weekend of July 17-18.
A 28-year USC faculty member, Rink will be recognized for her career accomplishments, outstanding community service and representation of her alma mater. She has authored or co-authored six books, written more than 40 articles in refereed publications and delivered more than 60 national or international presentations in her field.
At the state level, Rink has directed the South Carolina Education Assessment Program, which is a comprehensive model for state assessment emulated by New York state. The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) named her to its Hall of Fame in 2000 and, in 2007, presented her with its Teacher Educator Honor Award.
