Madisonville Community College is pleased to announce the selection of Whitley Dillingham as the Student of the Month for November. Dillingham, of Dawson Springs, was nominated by Chandy Melton, Assistant Professor of History. Melton shared in her nomination that Whitley is a student in her Women's History course, which is being taught as an open-source class for the very first time. Whitley has set a high example for her classmates. She has been very innovative in gathering and organizing materials to support her course work. She started keeping a binder the first week of class and has essentially created her own textbook to use for quiz and exam preparation. Her grades in this course are near perfect. She has perfect attendance and has served as a team leader for her group during problem-based learning assignments. Whitley's binder and research topics have given Melton some good ideas on how to proceed in the Open Educational Resource initiative.

Dillingham was presented with a certificate and a Barnes amp; Noble $50 gift card on December 4 during her Women s History class.
