The Association for Educational and Communications Technology has presented its Presidential Distinguished Service Award to Vandy Pacetti-Donelson, dean of undergraduate studies at the United States Sports Academy.
The award is presented each year for exemplary service to the association and to the field of instructional design.
Pacetti-Donelson, who joined the academy in 2018, is also co-chair of AECT’s bylaws committee.
“When we serve our profession, we are also serving our students with the ideas we learn in collaboration with other professionals. We are serving our students well, and our impact reaches beyond our walls,” said Pacetti-Donelson. “The academy has been a part of the history of distance education and I am happy to continue to be a part of that tradition in the field.”
