McKay School maintains connections with alumni through magazine
Alumni, faculty, and students of the David O. McKay School of Education work across the country and around the world. Ranging from local schools to the worldwide reach of UNESCO, they research, teach, present, and contribute to education improvement.
The McKay School maintains connections with its alumni through the magazine McKay Today, which recently received the Council for Advancement and Support of Education’s (CASE) Circle of Excellence award. The Circle of Excellence award is given to members of CASE for their work toward a lasting impact in education through professional representation, exceptional research results, and valuable contributions.
Cally Flox, BYU A.R.T.S. Partnership Program Director, said McKay Today keeps her connected to the McKay School through addressing various aspects of education. “I appreciate being a part of a school of education that reaches many different areas of concern,” said Flox. “I have been informed of many critical issues through this magazine.”
Byran Korth, professor in the Department of Teacher Education, wrote an article for the fall 2011 issue, addressing parent participation in young children’s education. He said McKay Today linked him to others as he shared his ideas. “It gave me an opportunity to share some of the work I’ve been doing in areas [of early education] that are important to me,” said Korth.
McKay Today allows alumni to stay current with programs and initiatives of the McKay School, with faculty research and publications, and with news of alumni and former faculty. The most recent issue of the magazine can be viewed online at http://edcuation.byu.edu/news/magazine/.
