Elizabeth Jean McCuskey


Hometown: Saint Albans, WV

Majors: Secondary Education; English
Honors or awards: Secondary Student Teacher of the Year Award, nominated for a Maier award for English capstone paper, and graduating Magna Cum Laude from the Marshall University Honors College


Future plans: I’m getting married to my best friend, Andrew, at the end of May, and hopefully soon, I’ll be teaching and beginning an internship with my church!

When asked if there was a particular course or memory that stands out when looking back over her time as an English major she said:

“Dr. Isaacs’ classroom management class, Dr. Tigchelaar’s English 355 and Appalachian literature classes, Dr. Lumpkin’s African American Literature class, and Dr. Seelinger’s Schools in a Diverse Society class.”

Congratulations, Elizabeth!
