    RIDGEFIELD, CT, August 05, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present John Karl Fisher, EdD, with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Fisher celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

After accruing more than four decades of professional excellence, Dr. Fisher retired from his work as a consultant with St. Basil's Seminary in Stamford, Connecticut. At the start of his career, he served in the United States Army Chemical Corps and the United States Army Reserve. After his military service, he taught secondary school mathematics and science in Baltimore County, Maryland. Later, he joined the University of Maryland as the Assistant Director for the Research Commission on Pupil Services. From there, Dr. Fisher began teaching for institutions such as the George Washington University, Pennsylvania State University and Edinboro University, where he held such roles as professor of psychology, and assistant and associate vice president of academic affairs.

Over the years, Dr. Fisher gained valuable expertise in educational administration through serving as Vice President of Alfred State College of Technology, President of Norwalk State Technical College, Dean of Norwalk Community College and President of Saint Vincent College. Although his career has been filled with highlights, he is especially proud of being chosen to be the assistant of the University of Maryland's Dr. Walter Waetjen - a scholar and former professional football player.

An expert in his field, Dr. Fisher holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Science from Alfred University in Alfred, New York, and a Doctor of Education from the University of Maryland. In between his master's and doctoral degrees, he pursued two fellowships through the National Science Foundation and Penn State University. In order to remain abreast of changes in the field, Dr. Fisher affiliated himself with the American Legion, the American Personnel and Guidance Association, and various educational associations. Dr. Fisher is a prolific researcher and writer with 28 publications in national journals.

During his spare time, Dr. Fisher made sure to give back to those less fortunate through the Erie County Long Range Planning Commission, the Edinboro United Cerebral Palsy Drive, and many community organizations. For his excellence in educational administration, he has received a Distinguished Alumnus Award from Alfred University, a Distinguished Administrator Award from Edinboro University and a Distinguished Service Award from the University of Maryland, College Park. Looking forward, Dr. Fisher intends to continue enjoying his retirement.
