The Maybelle Ranney Price Professorship
The Maybelle Ranney Price Professorship is in honor of Maybelle Ranney (Brechlin) Price, who graduated from the Stout Institute and taught briefly at Roberts, WI and Savannah, IL high schools and later in Fond du Lac and Eau Claire, WI. She concluded her career at the Chippewa Valley Technical College.
Following World War II, Maybelle became a civilian employee of the U.S. Government in Okinawa and on her return to the U.S. worked as a medical secretary in San Francisco and at the University of Minnesota hospital. Upon her death in 1993, a bequest was left to the Stout University Foundation, part of which has been used to partially endow the Maybelle Professorship. Beginning in 2013, additional support for the Maybelle Professorship was provided by the College of Education, Hospitality, Health and Human Sciences.
The Maybelle Ranney Price Professorship is awarded in recognition of outstanding ability and promise and provides support for the recipient's professional activities. Each person named shall carry the title of Maybelle Ranney Price Professor for the duration of the appointment.
Faculty members of the University of Wisconsin-Stout College of Education, Hospitality, Health and Human Sciences are eligible. Maybelle Ranney Price Professors receive two semesters of .25 assignment (3-credit release) to pursue their professional activities, so this Professorship is not appropriate for individuals on sabbatical. Recipients are not eligible for overload pay while on reassigned time.
