Professor Susan Cherup Recipient of Vanderbush-Weller Award

Long-time faculty member Susan M. Cherup, who is the Arnold and Esther Sonneveldt Professor of Education at Hope College, has been named recipient of the college’s 15th annual “Vanderbush-Weller Award” for strong, positive impact on students.

The award recognizes and supports the efforts of Hope faculty and staff who make extraordinary contributions to the lives of students.  Cherup was honored during a luncheon on Thursday, May 1.
“Susan is a gift to students through her love of teaching, the unconditional care she shows to all, and the way she reaches out to nurture students on the margins,” said Dr. Richard Frost, vice president and dean of students at Hope, whose office coordinates the award, which is presented based on nominations from the campus community.  “Her smile is infectious and is like sun on a winter day.”

Cherup has been a member of the Hope faculty since 1976 and was appointed to her endowed professorship in 2006.  Her areas of expertise are special education and technology integration.
