Executive Director Kate Shaw Wins National Award

“Meet me in St. Louis” may be a refrain from a classic musical show tune of the 1940s, but it’s also precisely what RFA’s executive director, Kate Shaw, heard when she learned that she had won a major national award from the Association of the Study of Higher Education (ASHE). Shaw was presented with the first-ever Excellence in Public Policy in Higher Education award on November 13 at ASHE’s national conference in St. Louis. The award recognizes an individual who “contributes excellent work at the nexus of academic scholarship and policy practice in the field of public policy and higher education.”
