West Campus Professor Susan St. Claire, D.C., West ’84, was recently honored
with the 2007 Women in Education Award by the California Federation of
Teachers (CFT). The honor was accepted by Rajeesh Doobay, D.C., West ’02,
West Campus instructor and convention delegate, at the CFT’s annual convention,
March 16-18, in Los Angeles.
The CFT represents childhood- through university-level educators and school
staff throughout the state. Honorees are nominated by colleagues from among
the union’s more than 100 chapters. The award recognizes the outstanding
efforts of members who have distinguished themselves as educators and
“Receiving this award was a wonderful opportunity, since I was able to represent
women in education, our labor union, Palmer and chiropractic,” said Dr. St.
Claire, a 22-year member of the West Campus faculty. “The more other teachers
hear about us, the better it is for our profession and for Palmer College.”
