SWOSU Professor to be Honored by Western National Parks Association

Dr. Siriporn Peters, assistant professor at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, has been awarded the 2018 Western National Parks Association (WNPA) Stewart L. Udall Award.

Peters, faculty member in the SWOSU Department of Art, Communication & Theater, will be honored on November 8 by the WNPA in Tucson (AZ).

The Udall Award is named in honor of Stewart L. Udall, who was Secretary of the Interior from 1960-1968 and later served on the WNPA’s Board of Directors from 1984-1994. The award, which was established in 2011, recognizes individuals whose work boosts park interpretation programs, carried the park message to popular audiences and rallies broad public support for the parks.

In recognition of Peters’ service, the award includes a $1,000 check and travel expenses to the event.

Peters has been a graphics design faculty member at SWOSU since 2013.
