Brenau’s Autumn Dodso…

This week, I want to sing the praises of Autumn Dodson, an undergraduate alumna and current graduate student at Brenau University. Autumn is the author of the book “My Teacher Looks Like Me,” a wonderful book for young people about how important it is for them to identify and aspire based on the fact that their teacher has characteristics like them — that they’re able to see their future in their teacher.

As an undergraduate student at Brenau, Autumn was the highest-scoring player in Golden Tigers basketball history and the winner of the Miss Brenau Ideal. Autumn also recently finished her Doctor of Education at Brenau and is about to graduate — so soon, she will be Dr. Dodson.

Autumn is currently among the fine teachers at Simpson Elementary School in Gwinnett County. In fact, she was the first Black teacher at that school, and this fact and her experience inspired both her dissertation work and the publication of her book.

Congratulations, Autumn. We are so proud of you, and you are going to be a role model for many students who will follow both in your own classroom and at Brenau University. You are living the Brenau Ideal.

Before I end, I must remind you that the way we will have a robust fall is for everyone to be vaccinated. So if you have not received your COVID vaccine, please contact Health Services at 770-534-6135 or covid@brenau.edu to schedule an appointment for yourself, friends or family members. It is extremely important that we all do our part to ensure the health and safety of ourselves and our campus community.

I hope you have a wonderful week, and I’ll see you next week.

Anne A. Skleder, President .
