Betty Garlic Lifetime Achievement Award
MiAEYC is pleased to announce the awarding of the 2013 Betty Garlick Lifetime Achievement Award to
Dr. Mary Trepanier-Street.
The award is named for Betty Garlick, the first president of MiAEYC
(1974-1976), and honors her life-long commitment to young children and their families. Recipients of the award demonstrate a commitment to Michigan’s children and families, and have made exceptional contributions to the early childhood profession.
Mary has a long history of involvement in early childhood professional organizations and served as Chairperson of the Michigan Early Childhood Education Consortium, a group of leaders in the field of early education. Under her leadership, a brand new endorsement was added to elementary teacher certification: General and Special Education Early Childhood (ZS). Her legacy is the thousands of teachers she has prepared and the impact these teachers have on the lives of children. The ripple effect of her leadership and commitment will be felt for years to come.
Mary’s commitment to improving the education of young children, combined with her research and leadership, exemplifies the spirit of Betty Garlick. The award was presented to Dr. Trepanier-Street at the MiAEYC Annual Early Childhood Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
