Phuture teacher earns Radder Memorial Award
There’s a nice story with photos newly posted about Mark Yanke, who was presented the Whitney Radder Phuture Phoenix Phenomenal Role Model Award for the fall 2011 semester at a ceremony Wednesday on campus. Yanke is a Gillett native and returning student, having received a bachelor’s degree in English in May of 2010. He returned to UW-Green Bay this fall to get teaching certification. He is just finishing his first semester in the Professional Program in Education and hopes to teach English/Language Arts at either the middle or high school level. Yanke was chosen by his peers as the student who most demonstrates outstanding leadership and dedication to partner schools, said Kim Desotell, director of the Phuture Phoenix Program. The award is named for Whitney Radder, Phuture Phoenix tutor and Education student killed in a tragic car accident as she returned from a Phuture Phoenix visit to Franklin Middle School on April 20, 2010.
