Jeanene Yule Scholarship for Excellence in Teacher Education
Jeanene Yule was an associate professor of education and chair of the department at North Central College. She is remembered at the College and in area schools as a dynamic leader and educator who was committed to making North Central’s education department the best that it could be.
As department chair, Dr. Yule provided strong leadership and set the stage for dramatic growth in education enrollments at North Central College. She opened new relationships with area school districts, developed a master of arts in education program, and espoused a philosophy which called for the blending of educational theory and practice in both programming and staffing.
Her outreach activities included developing a technology network involving some 50 school districts; creating College-school partnerships with several Naperville schools; establishing a Summer Graduate Institute; and significantly expanding the certification-only program. Jeanene Yule earned both B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Wisconsin and an Ed. D. from Loyola.
In her memory, North Central established the Jeanene Yule Scholarship for Excellence in Teacher Education.
