K-STATE AT SALINA'S RAYLENE ALEXANDER EARNS MASTER AVIATION EDUCATOR ACCREDITATION

SALINA -- Raylene Alexander, assistant professor of aviation at Kansas State University at Salina, has earned Master Aviation Educator accreditation.

Alexander is one of only 22 Kansas teachers of aviation and one of seven K-State at Salina faculty members to earn the accreditation.

Master Aviation Educator accreditation, offered through Master Instructors LLC, recognizes individuals who work as professional teachers of aviation in industry but who do not hold Federal Aviation Administration instructor certification.

Candidates must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to excellence, professional growth and service to the aviation community. They also must pass a rigorous evaluation by a peer review board. Designees are recognized as outstanding aviation educators for not only their excellence in teaching, but for their engagement in the continuous process of learning -- both their own and their students'.

Alexander joined K-State Salina in 2006. She is responsible for spearheading the Jet Ahead program, a mentoring program for female students in aviation maintenance -- airframe and powerplant -- around the country. She also serves as the technical education committee chair with the University Aviation Association.
