Dr. Kay Clapp Children’s Literacy Award Winners NamedJune 24, 2016
The Dr. Kay Clapp Children’s Literacy Fund was endowed by Dr. and Mrs. Sam Minner to 2006 to honor Dr. Clapp, a professor emeritus in the Department of Education at Truman State University.
Dr. Clapp is a powerful proponent of literacy and children’s literature. Hundreds of students and practicing teachers have been influenced by her dedication and careful mentoring.
Through donations to the Truman Foundation, the annual award provides $500 each to a Master of Arts in Education student and a Northeast Missouri teacher to purchase children’s literature for their professional practices.
Congratulations to the 2016 recipients, MAE alumna Erin Thompson and Adair County R-1 teacher Kim McClamroch.
