Congratulations to Cindy Jesup, who successfully defended her doctoral dissertation in art education at Florida State University. (The defense was virtual, but we failed to get a good video screen shot . . . these are old pictures.) Cindy’s dissertation was titled “Caught on the Net: Working with Preservice Art Educators to Develop Digital Awareness in the Art Room”. Whether it was a global pandemic, return to K-12 work, moving from school to school, or across state lines, Cindy always persevered and showed a tenacity to overcome whatever life and academics threw at her. I am honored to have served as Cindy’s major professor and to have written and presented with her in different venues. Congratulations, Dr. Jesup! I am proud of you!
