Pittsburgh, May 8, 2008 — La Roche College graduate Caitlin Goodwin, of Brookline, Pa., was recently announced as the 2008 recipient of the La Roche College Department of Teacher Education Award for Academics and Service Excellence.

Goodwin, who earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a special education certificate this spring, initiated and waged a campaign that resulted in the Board of Directors approving a proposal to increase the number of credits students could take before being charged with a credit overload. She surveyed students to garner support for the proposal and she also surveyed other institutions to determine current credit overload practices. The La Roche Department of Education faculty believed Goodwin’s efforts and accomplishments were particularly commendable because she will not personally benefit from the change that she helped to effect.

Goodwin’s collegiate accomplishments include: athletic representation to the La Roche student government (2005-2006), La Roche women’s soccer team (2004-2007, captain in 2007), AMCC Academic All-Conference Dean’s List, Alpha Delta Kappa scholarship for aspiring teachers, and the La Roche College Regent Scholarship for Academics.

Goodwin also volunteered at her church and coached soccer for the Brookline Youth Soccer league and the PA West Soccer league in 2006-2007.

Goodwin completed her elementary student teaching assignments in the South Park School District and she is currently completing her special education teaching assignment at the Chartiers Valley Middle School.

She is the daughter of David and Susan Goodwin of Brookline, Pa.
