Beverly E. Conway, MS, BS, AS, Science Educator at Williston State College, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in science and nutrition.
Though she was not originally planning on teaching, Ms. Conway realized there was an opportunity to teach a class at the local college and she decided to try it. She found out how much she loved it and the rest is history. Ms. Conway earned her AS from the University of North Dakota, Williston in 1972 and her BS in biology from the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks in 1974. She then received her MS in nutrition for Washington State University in 1977. During her time pursuing her MS, she was a graduate research teaching assistant at Washington State University from 1974 until graduation in 1977.
The part that Ms. Conway likes the best and the reason that she keeps teaching is simply watching her students succeed. When students get excited about learning is what she thinks makes most teachers continue teaching. Prior to becoming a teacher, Ms. Conway was a biology LHR assistant at Bentley College in Waltham Massachusetts from 1982 to 1983. From there, she became a research assistant at the South West Foundation for Biomedical Research from 1985 to 1998. It was not until 10 years later that she became an associate professor of sciences and nutrition at Williston State College in 1998, a position she holds to this day. She was also a guest speaker on nutrition to a cancer support group and other health organizations throughout her career.
As a testament to her success, Ms. Conway was listed in Who’s Who in American Junior Colleges and the 64th and 65th edition of Who’s Who in America. She was also inducted as a member of the Northern Plains Sustain Agriculture Society and was a foundation director for the Sons of Norway from 2004 to 2005. In her spare time, Ms. Conway enjoys gardening and singing.
