Fry to receive honorary doctorate from university in Thailand
Gerald Fry, professor in the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development, will receive an honorary doctor of philosophy of education for locality development from Rajabhat Rajanagarindra University in Thailand.
Rajabhat Rajanagarindra University is home to a relatively new institute for quality teacher development where Professor Fry is a formal adviser and has done training over the past four years. He starts his sixth decade of work on Thailand, dating back to his Peace Corps teaching back in late 1960s.
Three of his former Thai students are now university presidents and two others are editors of Thailand's leading English and Thai language newspapers.
