Pittsburgh, October 18 — Ed Brett, Ph.D., chair of the Department of History and Political Science at La Roche College, was recently selected for the 2005-06 edition of "Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers"®. The yearly publication lists approximately 156,000 of the best educators in the nation. Teachers are nominated by students who are included in editions of "Who’s Who Among American High School Students"® and "The National Dean’s List"®. After they are notified of their inclusion, students have the opportunity to nominate an educator who has been influential in their academic career. Teachers may also receive nominations from their communities and peers.

Dr. Brett has been a faculty member at La Roche since 1984. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Loyola University of New Orleans, a master’s degree from Louisiana State University and a doctorate from Rutgers University. While at La Roche, Dr. Brett has received numerous awards for excellence in teaching, including the Commitment to Excellence Award (2003-2004), the La Roche College Alumni Association Educator's Award (1999) and the Gregory Nugent Teaching Award (1994). His books include "Humbert of Romans: His Life and Views of Thirteenth-Century Society," "Murdered in Central America: The Stories of Eleven U.S. Missionaries," (co-authored with Donna W. Brett) and "The U.S. Catholic Press on Central America: From Cold War Anticommunism to Social Justice" (nominated for the John Gilmary Shea Award, which is given annually for the best book on U.S. Catholic history).

“I believe that history is of great importance to all of us, regardless of our college major or occupation,” Dr. Brett said. “Once students realize that learning history can actually be exciting and fun and that it doesn’t have to be a dreaded task, they develop a whole new attitude towards the world and their leaders, one that is critical but positive. When this happens to one of my students, I am thrilled.” <
