Owens Faculty Member Named "Post-Secondary Business Teacher of the Year"

  Dr. Rose Kuceyeski, an Office Administration Technology professor at Owens Community College for 14 years, has been honored as the "Post-Secondary Business Teacher of the Year" by the Ohio Business Teachers Association (OBTA).

  "I am very flattered by this honor from my peers across the state," Kuceyeski said. "OBTA has worked hard for business education in Ohio's schools and I'm proud to receive this award."

  OBTA has 500 members who are business teachers, professors and administrators in secondary and post-secondary educational institutions in Ohio. Kuceyeski has been a member of OBTA for 15 years, serving as treasurer, secretary and now is past president of the organization.

  The "Teacher of the Year" award was based on Kuceyeski's contributions to business education through teaching; her participation in local, state and national professional associations; her contributions to business education through articles, publications and research; as well as involvement in activities such as administrative responsibilities and working with student organizations.

  Kuceyeski serves as secretary/treasurer for the Region 4 Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs and on the Clerical Specialist Advisory Committee for Penta County Joint Vocational School. She was the advisor for the Owens' chapter of Collegiate Secretaries International. This year, Kuceyeski is the co-chair of the North Central Association Self-Study Process for the College.

  She earned a bachelor's degree in English from Malone College in Canton, a master's in business education from Bowling Green State University and a doctoral degree in curriculum and instruction materials at the University of Toledo.
