Professor Emily Sendin

Emily Sendin, professor of English, Speech, Literature & Creative Writing in the English and Communications department at MDC, has received the Associated College Press (ACP) Pioneer Award.

Pioneers are distinguished journalism educators and advocates who have provided exceptional leadership for collegiate media programs and made exceptional contributions to collegiate journalism and to the association in its service. The Pioneer is the only award ACP presents to journalism educators. A six-member committee of retired and active advisers from across the nation reviewed and selected the honorees.

At Miami Dade College, Emily Sendin was recently awarded the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana Foundation Endowed Teaching Chair. The Endowed Teaching Chair Program is a faculty honor and one of MDC’s most prestigious and valued traditions. Each year, top faculty are selected by their peers for this special award, demonstrating excellence in teaching and commitment to MDC’s mission.
