2018 - Melissa Ames
Dr. Melissa Ames (English) has been awarded the 2018 Luis Clay Mendez Distinguished Service Award. Dr. Ames is recognized for her dedicated service to the English department, EIU, her profession, and the community. In addition to serving on numerous university, college, and English department committees, she has done exceptional work in organizing and leading the English Department summer camp over the last four years. She also regularly volunteers in the public school, having served as a literacy volunteer in the Champaign Public School System, as a PTA Secretary, and a Young Author’s Contest facilitator and judge. This involvement demonstrates another way in which Dr. Ames shares her expertise as a member of the university learning community with the wider public and clearly ties into the work she does in teaching and mentoring future teachers.
