Strauss recognized by Flagler Trustees

Sep 9, 2020

During a summer meeting of the Flagler College Board of Trustees, the Trustees conferred upon Dr. Susan Strauss, the title of Professor Emerita, effective immediately. Strauss retired after the completion of the 2019-2020 academic year after 20 years in education at Flagler College Tallahassee, of which she joined the faculty in its inaugural year.

Said Dean of Flagler College Tallahassee Wayne Riggs, “In many respects, she is the foundational cornerstone of the Elementary Education major, a program that is recognized throughout the region for the high quality teachers it has produced.”

To date, 60 Flagler College Tallahassee alumni have been named ‘Teacher of the Year’ in surrounding Leon, Wakulla, and Gadsden counties.

Strauss is the first faculty member from Tallahassee to receive this distinction.

The college is set to celebrate its 20th anniversary and will embark this fall on a new “2+2 for Education” program with partner Tallahassee Community College.
