Williams Baptist University has honored Dr. RoseMary Weaver for her years of service and dedication to the institution. Weaver will retire at the end of this month, after implementing WBU’s new online and graduate programs.
Dr. Brad Baine, academic dean at Williams, presented Weaver with a plaque in recognition of her time at Williams.
“Dr. Weaver has developed education degrees at the undergraduate and graduate levels at Williams. Her superior ability to build quality academic programs is remarkable,” said Baine. “Dr. Weaver has positively impacted many lives through her teaching. Williams Baptist University has been blessed by Dr. Weaver’s leadership during her years of service.”
Weaver was the first chair of the Williams Teacher Education Program in the 1990s and guided WBU in beginning its Bachelor of Science in Education degree. Since then, the WTEP has earned wide respect across the region as it has prepared teachers in eight education majors.
After leaving Williams, Weaver served as curriculum coordinator for the Pocahontas School District, but she returned to WBU to help launch its graduate and online programs. In her most recent role, she has guided Williams in launching its first graduate degree, the Master of Arts in Teaching, which began last year, and in preparing its Master of Science in Education degree, which will launch this fall.
Williams offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in various areas of study. For more information, visit williamsbaptistuniversity.com.
