K-STATE'S JANA HAWLEY TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT-ELECT OF INTERNATIONAL TEXTILE AND APPAREL ASSOCIATION

MANHATTAN -- The head of Kansas State University's department of apparel, textiles and interior design has been elected an officer of an international association.

Jana Hawley will begin her term as president-elect of the International Textile and Apparel Association Sept. 1, and assume the presidency in September 2010. Hawley has previously served as vice president of operations for the association.

The organization is a professional, educational association of scholars, educators and students in the textile, apparel and merchandising disciplines in higher education. The association also is open to professionals employed in the textile, apparel and merchandising fields interested in the pursuit of knowledge, interchange of ideas and dissemination of knowledge through meetings, special events and publications.

Her research areas include textile recycling and the Old Order Amish. Her work in textile recycling has earned her international acclaim. She is a graduate of the HERS Bryn Mawr Summer Institute, a Wakonse Fellow and has received a Kemper Award for Teaching Excellence. She is a member of K-State's Friends of the Costume and Textiles Museum board and the advisory board of K-State's Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art.

Hawley earned her Ph.D. at the University of Missouri in human environmental sciences with an emphasis in textile and apparel management, and her master's in clothing and textiles from Oklahoma State University. Her bachelor's degree is from Fort Hays State University.
