After serving the West Des Moines Community School District for 30 years, eighth-grade teacher Mary Brooks was honored with the 2008 Drake University School of Education Excellence in Education Award.
Each year in its main stage season, Drake Theatre typically selects one student from multiple applicants to direct a full-length production -- a chance offered by very few universities. To set itself apart even more, this year instead of one show, Drake Theatre presented three student-directed plays.
The Lawrence C. and Delores M. Weaver Medal of Honor -- the highest award presented by the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences -- will be awarded to Richard Morrow, the Ellis and Nelle Levitt distinguished professor of pharmacology.
