TSU College of Education Recognized
A professor and a doctoral graduate from the TSU College of Education received awards from the 2015 National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE) in Washington, D.C.
NABSE presented Dr. Jay Cummings with the Lifetime Achievement Award for contributions that spoke to the significant theme of “Saving African-American Children” and honoring significant efforts of their teachers and administrators. Previously, his outstanding engagement had represented accomplishments that led to following recognitions in prior NABSE conferences: W.E.B. DuBois Higher Education Award, Hall of Fame Award, and Founder’s Award
His leadership and engagement are represented by chairing NABSE’s Demonstration Schools and Communities Initiative, organizing as a Founder and providing presidential leadership in the establishment of affiliates that are operating in Texas. Included in the listing are: Dallas Regional Alliance of Black School Educators (DRABSE), the Austin Alliance of Black School Educators (AABSE) and the Texas Alliance of Black School Actuators (TAABSE).
NABSE recognized Dr. Dawn Dubose Randle, a doctoral graduate from the College of Education at Texas Southern University, as the recipient of the “Principal of the Year Award” for outstanding service to her school, students and community. Also, during this dedicated service, she led the Houston Area Alliance of Black School Educators (HAABSE) to operationalize that “all children can learn, when our educators teach effectively”.
Dr. Emiel Owens and Dr. Cummings presented a critical research-based topic, “Comparing the Disparity in Disciplinary Placements of African American males based on Zero Tolerance Policies Across School Settings in the United States.” Dr. Rozalind Vaughn, a doctoral graduate from the College of Education, and recently retired Dr. Cherry Gooden provided support and congratulations to the awardees.
