Congratulations to the 2022 CCCC Exemplar!
The selection committee is excited to identify Louise Wetherbee Phelps, Scholar-in-Residence, Rhetoric and Writing, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, as recipient of the 2022 CCCC Exemplar Award. The breadth and depth of Dr. Phelps’ scholarly and programmatic contributions to the field, the legacy of her continued mentorship, and her ethic of “slow composing” exemplify what the committee identified as a “lifespan literacy” of service to the profession worthy of emulation.
