Lounsbury receives national award, entered into Congressional Record

Dr. John H. Lounsbury, Dean Emeritus of the School of Education at Georgia College & State University, has received the Joan Lipsitz Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform Schools to Watch Program. The award was presented to him in Washington, D.C., at the recent national conference of the National Forum’s prestigious Schools to Watch program.

In addition to this recognition, the highest award given by the Forum, Dr. Lounsbury was entered into the Congressional Record by his Congressman, Jim Marshall. The citation, presented to Congress on June 16, spoke of Dr. Lounsbury’s significant contributions to the field of middle level education over the course of his distinguished career.

He has been a leading force in shaping the direction and structure of middle schools throughout the country and internationally as well, and he continues that work today on a full-time basis as publications editor for National Middle School Association and co-director of the Georgia Lighthouse Schools to Watch program.

The program has identified exemplary middle schools in Georgia who have met and maintained the rigorous criteria established by the National Forum. Georgia was the first of 14 states chosen by the Forum to participate in this program, and to date there are 86 schools across the nation recognized as Schools to Watch. Much of the success of this program in Georgia is due to the inspirational leadership of Dr. Lounsbury.
