Associate Dean for Academic Development Receives Disability Services Award

Posted on March 28, 2013.

HPU High Point University GoedekeHIGH POINT, N.C., March 28, 2013 – Dr. D. Allen Goedeke, associate dean for academic development department at High Point University, was recently awarded by the North Carolina Association on Higher Education and Disabilities (NCAHEAD) with the Laura Thomas Award.

“I am honored by the recognition but like everyone else at the university, I simply was doing what was right for our students,” Goedeke says.

The Laura Thomas Award recognizes an outstanding professional outside the field of disability services who has demonstrated exemplary support of disability services within a post-secondary academic setting and who is not a disability service provider. The association describes the person as someone who “has made our lives easier,” and who may not realize the value of what she or he does. The award is named for Laura Thomas, a pioneer who paved the way for disability services in the state of North Carolina. She laid much of the groundwork for North Carolinian post-secondary institutions today, as well as colleges and universities across the country.

“Dr. Goedeke works tirelessly to support all students at High Point University and is worthy of the recognition acknowledged by the Laura Thomas Award,” says Rita Sullivant, disability support coordinator at HPU. “We are impressed with all of Dr. Goedeke’s accomplishments in his 28 years of service and delighted that he was the winner.”
