Hannah Walker, of Charlotte Court House, recently earned the College of Education’s Outstanding Undergraduate Award at Mary Baldwin University (MBU).

According to a press release from the university, Walker jumped at the opportunity to major in liberal arts and educational studies when the university introduced it in 2014.

She recently completed her elementary student teaching placement, expertly showcasing what her professors and fellow teachers refer to as her “good teacher mojo.”

“Known by her peers as exceptionally bright, Walker has excelled in her classes, and was selected by the College of Education faculty to represent MBU at the Virginia Teachers of Promise Institute this year. Walker also served the university as a student worker in the admissions office, providing a welcoming face to campus visitors and prospective students alike,” according to the press release.

MBU, founded in 1842, is a deliberately small, coeducational university with the foresight to see possibility, the courage to act, and a profound commitment to community.
