Robert G. Mead, Jr. Award
In 1996, an annual award of up to $300 was established in memory of Robert G. Mead, Jr., a beloved colleague and friend in the world language profession, University of Connecticut professor emeritus of Spanish American Literature, a recipient of the CT COLT Distinguished Service Award, a founder of both the Connecticut Council of Language Teachers and the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), and mentor to countless language students and teachers throughout his long and illustrious career. Dr. Mead quietly assisted many language teachers to attend conferences to further their knowledge and understanding of the art of teaching. The Robert C. Mead, Jr. Award keeps alive the spirit of his tradition and CT COLT is pleased to honor such an outstanding person in this way.
