BYU graduate student wins national development award

A Brigham Young University graduate student in English has been awarded the NCTE Leadership Development Award supported by the National Council of Teachers of English and Prentice Hall-Pearson Education.

Nathan Phillips, who is also a teacher at Lone Peak High School in Highland, Utah, was nominated by the Utah Council of Teachers of English, an affiliate of NCTE, because he has never attended an NCTE convention and met the following criteria: one to five years of teaching experience, a demonstrated capacity for professional leadership and a willingness to serve the affiliate during the 2004-2005 academic year.

The program, which was developed to nurture new leaders, provides early career teachers with $500 to attend the NCTE Annual Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, in November. Phillips, along with 33 other winners, will be honored at the Affiliate Breakfast at the convention on Sunday, Nov. 21.

The National Council of Teachers of English, with 60,000 individual and institutional members worldwide, is dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of English and the language arts at all levels of education.
