Nagy Elected to Reading Hall of Fame
Professor of Education William Nagy will be inducted into the Reading Hall of Fame on May 5. Hosted by the International Reading Association, the Reading Hall of Fame is an independent organization comprised of leaders in the field who have been elected by their peers. It was founded in 1973 for the purpose of contributing to further improvements in reading instruction.
The Reading Hall of Fame   website states that a candidate for membership must have a minimum of at least 25 years of active involvement in the professional reading community, must be widely known and respected by people in the field, must have been active in scholarly pursuits such as authoring reports of significant research, holding positions of responsibility in professional organizations, presenting at scholarly conferences, organizing programs, and consulting or aiding teachers in other ways.
“This is another example of the notoriety that Professor Nagy’s research and scholarly activities are commanding,” says Interim School of Education Dean Frank Kline. “In short, he is justly famous!”
