    LARAMIE, WY, May 18, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Kay Cowie with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Ms. Cowie celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her 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.

Accumulating decades of professional excellence in education, Ms. Cowie is currently designated as a senior lecturer emeritus and department chairman emeritus of special education at the University of Wyoming. Beginning her career in the public school system in 1968, she taught in several school districts across South Dakota before relocating to Wyoming, where she flourished for nearly 15 years. During her tenure, Ms. Cowie was active as a teacher for elementary school and special education students as well as a reading and special education specialist.

Among her responsibilities while serving as the department chairman of special education at the University of Wyoming, Ms. Cowie worked as the direct contact for the federal programs' representative. The aforementioned university was notably one of seven selected national sites to input on the Individuals with Disabilities Act. Meanwhile, while employed with the Albany County School District in Wyoming, she provided her expertise as a special education case manager, a trainer for the district and the principal for the special education summer program. Throughout her career in Wyoming, Ms. Cowie excelled as both a consultant and trainer for several area schools as well.

Born in Aberdeen, South Dakota, Ms. Cowie was raised next door to a young girl around her age who had severe disabilities. Over the years, her interactions with her neighbor influenced her to explore careers that would enable her to work with people just like her. Studying locally in college, she pursued an education at Northern State University, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in education in 1968 and Master of Science in education in 1970. A certified general education teacher for kindergarten through sixth grade as well as for middle school, Ms. Cowie is qualified as a reading specialist, an educational diagnostician and a supervisor for special programs.

Ms. Cowie was presented with research grants as a faculty member at the University of Wyoming. Her distinguished career at the University of Wyoming later earned her an Outstanding Service professional Award. She was also honored as the Teacher of the Year and the Academic Advisor of the Year. A celebrated Marquis listee, Ms. Cowie has been notably featured in the 66th edition of Who's Who in America.
