CEHHS Educators Hall of Honor


Educators Hall of Honor, John M. Peters, professor emeritus, was inducted, and a speech was made by Educators Hall of Honor scholarship recipient Andrea L. Arce-Trigatti, PhD student in Learning Environments and Educational Studies (LEEDS).


John M. Peters taught courses in collaborative learning, reflective practice, action research, and types of teaching and learning. He was inducted into the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame in 1997, and served as Chair of the Hall in 2012-13.

Peters said, “I owe this honor to the students and colleagues who made my career in higher education possible.”


“My commitment to becoming a stronger educational scholar stems from a philosophy that not much can be accomplished without directed effort, motivation, and an environment filled with people –like my LEEDS family at UT – that continuously support and inspire me to follow my interests.

Being awarded this scholarship gives me the opportunity to not only continue expanding my experiences with such an outstanding academic team, as the one here at UT, but to also advance in my graduate studies and contribute back to education through research, collaboration, and teaching.”


The Educators Hall of Honor was founded in 2002 by late College of Education Dean Rowell. It recognizes the impact of professionals established in the field of education, while supplementing the education of future students. Nominations are made with a minimum contribution of $1,000.

She said, “I feel incredibly fortunate to have my academic home in the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling and in the unit of Counselor Education. Where one works influences the quality of work, the motivation to contribute, and, most important, the help one may provide students. My research, teaching, and service has always involved collaboration both within Counselor Education and the larger department. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support during my years as a teacher, researcher, and scholar. I am fortunate to have received this award and humbled by the honor. Although it is presented as an individual honor, it reflects the positive contributions we all make as a department and as a program.”

Joel F. Diambra, associate department head and director of graduate studies, nominated her for this honor and said, “Marianne Woodside is an exemplary educator with a long-standing and distinguished record.

She has positively impacted thousands of students through teaching and mentoring over her professional lifetime and impacted hundreds of colleagues through her mentoring and positive spirit and infectious optimism.

She is an outstanding scholar and prolific writer and presenter – it is impossible to determine the vast number of additional lives she’s influenced through her publications and presentations.”
