EALR Welcomes Donna Link as Program Advisor

Donna Link, EALR student program advisor

Veteran Kentucky educator Donna Link has joined WKU’s Department of Educational Administration, Leadership, and Research as student program advisor.

Ms. Link’s role will include advising prospective students on program options, helping craft programs of study for EALR students in the education administration, adult education, doctoral, and Measurement, Evaluation, and Research programs, and assisting students with other advising issues.

“We are thrilled for Donna to join the team,” said EALR department chair Dr. Marguerita DeSander. “She brings a wealth of experience as a practicing educator and her organizational and communication skills will be a great asset to our students and faculty.”

After serving as a classroom teacher in various Kentucky school districts, Ms. Link has been a consultant with the Green River Regional Educational Cooperative for a number of years, including as director of the GRREC-OVEC Race to the Top grant since 2015. She will continue to serve in that capacity until June, but has already assumed some of her advising duties for EALR.

“It is an honor to join the EALR team who has an undeniable passion for growing, leading, and inspiring students to become active education leaders,” she said. “I’m truly humbled to have the opportunity to serve in this capacity.”
