Associate professor of kinesiology Michelle Grenier has been awarded the prestigious Julian U. Stein Lifetime Achievement Award by SHAPE (Society of Health and Physical Educators) America. The award is given to someone who exemplifies leadership in teaching, mentorship, writing, speaking and volunteerism at all levels of professional involvement including higher education, as well as educational and community programming.
Throughout her career Grenier has dedicated herself to preparing future leaders in health and physical education at all levels of teaching, and for the past seven years has organized UNH’s annual Adapted Physical Education Conference, an event filled with activity sessions and workshops to further student and educator knowledge in adapting physical education for participants of all abilities.
“I am honored to be recognized by my colleagues for my contributions to the field of adapted physical education," says Grenier. "I very much appreciate the hard-working teachers whose dedication to their students has inspired my teaching, as well as the many colleagues with whom I’ve collaborated throughout my career."
