This is one of the largest Christian Education organizations in North America and includes not only the PC(USA) but many other Reformed churches. She will be honored at the 2015 annual event which will gather over 1,000 persons in February in Baltimore. The Advocate (which is the organization's newsletter) has a feature article about Kathy here: http://advocate.apcenet.org/article/educator-year-kathy-dawson.

- Spring: Transforming Justice (visible through the Church and in the broad work of the Holy Spirit in a pluralistic and interdependent world).
Articles are generally 500 words and due 2-4 weeks in advance of going to press. Shorter articles will also be considered for the seminary blog Columbia Connections.
