Jovita M. Ross-Gordon, a professor in the Department of Counseling, Leadership, Adult Education and School Psychology at Texas State University, was inducted in the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame on November 18.

The induction was part of the 20th anniversary celebration of the Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City.

The International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame is a nonprofit corporation that honors individuals who have made distinguished contributions to the field of adult and continuing education. It preserves the significant legacies of these individuals in a permanent exhibit of plaques on the University of Oklahoma campus. Each plaque provides a brief biographical profile and photograph of the inductee. Individuals are nominated in one of the following three categories: scholars, practitioners, or policy makers. Ross-Gordon was nominated in the category of scholar.

In recognition of her achievements, Ross-Gordon was honored in 2013 by the Commission of Professors of Adult Education with their Career Achievement Award. Additionally, she has received the Distinguished Alumni-Lifetime Achievement Award from the University of Georgia’s College of Education, the Froke Outstanding Publication Award from the Association for Continuing Higher Education, the 2014 Texas State Presidential Distinction Award for Teaching Excellence, and the research award from the University Continuing Education Association.
