Susan J. Wolff, CEO and dean of Great Falls College Montana State University, has been named the 2015 Mike Malone Montana Educator of the year by the Montana Ambassadors for her outstanding accomplishments and excellence in the field of education and leadership in workforce development.
Wolff was one of 10 award winners announced last week by Montana Governor Steve Bullock. Wolff and other recipients will receive their awards at the Montana Ambassadors conference, which will be held in Great Falls on March 10.
"I am overwhelmed by the award," Wolff said. "To be presented this award by the Montana Ambassadors is an incredible honor. Daily I get to work with extremely talented and dedicated educators at Great Falls College MSU and across the state of Montana. My life's passion has been to provide opportunities for others. Every day I am excited to be part of the work for economic growth and diversification, workforce and community development, collaborative partnerships, and meaningful relevant education for the Great Falls region and all across the state. This award belongs to all who work at the college."
The award is given in honor of the late Michael P. Malone, a noted historian and professor who served from 1991 to 1999 as MSU’s 10th president.
