Award recognizes the important role of distance education

PLATTEVILLE, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin-Platteville and its Distance Learning Center (UW-Platteville Online) have announced the winner of the $500 Dawn Drake Excellence in Distance Education Scholarship. 

Matthew Meyer, originally of Beaver Dam, received his bachelor's degree in engineering from UW-Platteville in 2002 and is set to graduate with a master's degree in engineering through UW-Platteville's online program this fall. He currently works for River Valley Testing Corporation in Neenah and Green Bay.

"Matt was the natural leader in my class. He exhibits professionalism and superior technical writing skills as evidenced in the technical reports he submitted, but also in the course discussions and paper reviews," said Mark Meyers, an engineering instructor at UW-Platteville and fellow geotechnical engineer. "This is likely a carryover from his professional experience and his UW-Platteville undergraduate experience.” 

The academic scholarship, established by Dawn Drake, executive director of alternative delivery systems at UW-Platteville, is awarded each spring to a degree-seeking student who has successfully completed at least one course in a UW-Platteville Distance Education program and has a GPA of at least 3.0. It symbolizes the important role that distance education has played in Dawn’s life, personally and professionally.
