* Patti MCrory Receives 2014 Art Educator Award from Arts Council

Congratulations to Patti McCrory, professor and costume designer in UE’s Department of Theatre, for receiving the 2014 Art Educator Award from the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana. Patti was recognized for her dedication to the field of education and design. She was named as the award recipient on June 19, and she will receive the actual award at an annual Arts Council banquet on August 21.

Former student Cole McCarty says Patti’s greatest gift and talent in her role as teacher and mentor is her heart. “She taught me that it is not what kind of artist that defines me, but what kind of person I am. She is an educator who cannot be rivaled, an artist whose depth of talent is immense, and whose love for her students and the joy she receives is guiding them in developing their talents cannot be surpassed.”
