Former USD 207 Elementary School teacher, Glenda Sullivan inducted into the Oklahoma Educators Hall-of-Fame.
Recognized in Oklahoma and nationally as a geographic education advocate, Glenda B. Sullivan was named Lawton Teacher of the Year in 1996, and was the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence Medal Winner for Secondary Education in 1995. A classroom teacher of more than 27 years, Mrs. Sullivan is known for employing applied research in her “teach-the-teacher” workshops and programs she coordinates for the Oklahoma Alliance for Geographic Education (OKAGE). Because her husband was in the military, 16 years were spent in Oklahoma, primarily in Lawton Public Schools until she retired in 2001, but she has also taught in schools in Germany (Department of Defense), Kansas, Missouri and Texas. In 2010, Mrs. Sullivan was presented the Outstanding Support for Geography Education Award by the National Council for Geographic Education.
