Dr. Becky Schoeneberg, assistant professor of physical therapy at Southwest Baptist University, was recognized with the Minority Faculty Development Scholarship Award from the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). She will receive the award at the APTA’s annual conference in June.
Given annually to minority faculty members pursuing a post-professional doctoral degree, the award provides doctoral education support for minority faculty members and acknowledges and rewards those who demonstrate commitment to minority services and activities and show superior achievements in the profession of physical therapy.
Schoeneberg has received other recent honors, including being elected to serve as treasurer of the Missouri Physical Therapy Association and earning the SBU College of Science and Mathematics Faculty Service award. The latter is an annual recognition highlighting the work and service of an outstanding faculty member.
“Dr. Schoeneberg has quickly demonstrated herself as an academic who exceeds expectations and pushes herself to both develop herself and serve others,” said Dr. Steven G. Lesh, professor and chair of the department of physical therapy. “She is taking on a great responsibility in the statewide leadership position of our professional organization and is demonstrating great dedication by pursing her Ph.D. In these roles she will help to shape the future of the profession.”
