Corey Winchester, MEd 2013

The Cultural and Educational Policy Studies program is incredibly pleased that Mr. Corey Winchester, a 2013 graduate of our MEd program, is being honored with a distinguished alumnus award from Loyola.

Corey is a history and social science teacher at Evanston Township High School where he is also the coordinator of the Students Organized Against Racism (SOAR) student organization.  A recipient of a Fulbright-Hays award and also recognized by the Illinois State Board of Education as an “Excellent Early Career Educator."

Corey is someone who embodies the values and principles of both the Loyola School of Education and the Cultural and Educational Policy Studies Program.  At Loyola he distinguished himself as a thoughtful and committed student who quickly earned the respect of his professors and fellow students – and we are thrilled to now have him working as an adjunct instructor here teaching in the School of Education’s Leadership Studies Undergraduate Minor.  Corey is a member of the board of directors of the Evanston Scholars program, a non-profit that works to enhance college access for low income and first generation students of color.

In sum, Corey is an exemplary social justice educator and an alumnus that our School of Education can take considerable pride in.
