EAU CLAIRE — Dr. Gale Crouse, professor emeritus of foreign languages at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, is the recipient of the 2007 Founders Award by the Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

The Founders Award is the highest award the conference bestows upon one of its members from within the language teaching profession. The award was established by the Central States Conference in 1986 to honor its founders.

Recipients of the award exemplify excellence in the promotion of language learning and international studies, leadership in the language teaching profession, strong ties with one or more of the 17 central states, and professional dedication and enthusiasm.

Crouse, who received the award March 9 at the Central States Conference in Kansas City, Mo., joined the UW-Eau Claire faculty in 1987. He taught French and chaired the foreign languages department for 11 years before retiring in 2006. During his career, he published numerous articles that focused on the foreign language teaching profession and methods, wrote books reviews for the Modern Language Journal and French Review and was editor and publisher for the annual publications of the Central States Conference from 2003-05.

He also was honored with the Distinguished French Educator Award from the Wisconsin chapter of the American Association of Teachers of French and the Wisconsin Distinguished Foreign Language Educator Award from the Wisconsin Association of Foreign Language Teachers.

Crouse holds a bachelor's degree from Eastern Illinois University and a master's degree and Ph.D. from UW-Madison.
