NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin State University senior Lauren Kelley, of Lufkin, received the Olds Family Outstanding Student Teacher Award, which honors an exemplary student teacher from SFA's Department of Elementary Education each semester.

University field supervisor Barbara Morrison nominated Kelley for this honor, and a committee of six SFA elementary education faculty members, who reviewed teaching videos and additional materials, selected her to receive the award.

Kelley will graduate SFA this month with a bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies. Her specialization is teaching early childhood through sixth grade. She completed her student teaching at John F. Ward Elementary School in the Clear Creek Independent School District with third-grade teacher Wendy Hutchison serving as her mentor.
