On behalf of the Leadership Committee, I'd like to congratulate Cheryl Wachenheim on receiving the NACTA 2021 Distinguished Educator Award at the 27th Annual NACTA Meeting in June.
Cheryl Wachenheim, North Dakota State University
NACTA Distinguished Educator Award    
This award is meant to recognize meritorious service to NACTA and to higher education through teaching, educational research, and/or administration. Those eligible must be current or retired NACTA members and have ten or more years of service to higher education. Cheryl was nominated and supported by several NACTA members, coworkers, students and friends. From a letter of support of her nomination, a previous student said, "It is not possible in a short letter (or perhaps even a long letter) to do justice to the positive and meaningful impact Cheryl has had and continues to have on her colleagues, the profession and especially her students. There is no one I know more deserving of this awesome recognition, especially given her love for all things NACTA."

It is with sincere appreciation and gratitude for her continued efforts and outstanding service that we bestow this award to our dear friend and colleague, Cheryl Wachenheim. Congratulations, and thank you for all that you do for NACTA and higher education.

Thank you,
J. Marcos Fernandez
NACTA President 2020-2021
