Rosemary Oliphant-Ingham, a professor of secondary education at the University of Mississippi, has been honored by the national Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity as one of the nation’s Top-10 Outstanding Faculty Members.
Oliphant-Ingham has been a member of the UM School of Education faculty since 1998 and is the coordinator of secondary education in the Department of Teacher Education. She was among 10 educators selected from 110 nominees nationwide to receive the honor.
“I knew that I had been nominated by the Ole Miss chapter of Theta, but I had no idea it was for national recognition,” Oliphant-Ingham said. “I was quite surprised when I found out that I had been selected. It really was quite nice.”
Recipients are considered for the award based on nominations provided by students within the fraternity. Gabby Vogt, a sophomore English education major at Ole Miss, nominated Oliphant-Ingham. Vogt is a fellow in the Mississippi Excellence in Teaching Program, where she has worked closely with Oliphant-Ingham.
