It gives me great pleasure to inform you that Dr. Natalie LeBlanc (PhD, 2016) will be receiving the Arts Based Educational Research Award for Outstanding Dissertation at the upcoming AERA Annual Conference. Moreover, her dissertation received a runner-up distinction by the National Art Education Association for the Elliot Eisner Outstanding Dissertation Award at its recent New York conference held in early March, 2017. These are tremendous accomplishments and we wish to congratulate Dr. LeBlanc for her achievements!
