    BARNESVILLE, GA, January 25, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Lydia R. Herndon, Adjunct Faculty Member, Teacher Educator, Speaker and Curriculum Writer for the Division of Teacher Education of Gordon College, has been recognized by Worldwide Who's Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in higher education.

Dr. Herndon's work in education is a direct result of her passion for history and education. Over the past 35 years, she has served in a variety of roles, including an adjunct professor in Georgia and Alaska for 17 years. She also spent three years as a paralegal after earning a paralegal postgraduate certificate. For the past six years she has served as an adjunct faculty member, teacher educator, speaker and curriculum writer for Gordon College. She teaches 90 to 95 freshman and sophomores in three sections of an introductory course in multicultural and diversity education.

In 1984, Dr. Herndon graduated from Georgia State University with a Master of Education, followed 10 years later with a Ph.D. in Educational Administration from the same institution. She has since gained knowledge in moral education, teacher education, diversity and multicultural education, and educational foundations. "Moral education is a secular study of right and wrong," she explains. While pursuing her Ph.D., her dissertation, titled, "The Implementation of Georgia's List of Core Values" was accepted in 1994 at Georgia State University, which she names as one of the highlights of her career. She also helped organize Kennesaw State University's Center for Leadership, Ethics and Character.

In addition to her educational career, Dr. Herndon and her husband own a traveling museum tent, where they have a World War II motorcycle that is still running. It provides presentations where her husband dresses up as various historical characters. The "teaching tents" start with American values from the colonial period and end with students recognizing those American values in the present time.

Dr. Herndon is a member of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development and the Daughters of The American Revolution. A Christian her entire life, she attributes her success to her faith in God, and the support of her husband and family, who believe in education. She would like to start her own publishing company in the future.
