Mary Stokrocki (’81, Ph.D., Art Education), Professor of Art at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University, was selected as one of the first 2015 United States Society for Education Through Art (USSEA) Kenneth Marantz Distinguished Fellows. Recognized for her record of continuous service, leadership, and dedication to culturally inclusive art education, Stokrocki is one of three art educators to receive this recognition, which will be awarded at the USSEA Luncheon and Awards Ceremony.
In 2012 Kenethn Marantz, founder of USSEA, was named the first USSEA Fellow. Stokrocki’s recognition will be a special occasion, as this year’s ceremony will be given in honor of Marantz, who died in 2014.
Stokrocki recently gave the 2014 Distinguished Lecture in Art Education Address at Miami University of Ohio where the John Michael Art Education Historical Archives are held.
The Kenneth Marantz Fellows Program is designed to recognize exemplary contributions to the field of culturally inclusive art education and to USSEA by its members. This Fellows Program is intended to recognize achievement in the field of art education and in service to USSEA that is exceptional in its depth and breadth.
