CALDWELL – Albertson College of Idaho Associate Professor of English and Environmental Studies Rochelle Johnson received a Tribute to Women & Industry (TWIN) award from the Women and Children's Alliance at a luncheon on Tuesday, May 1.

Johnson was one of 41 women in the Treasure Valley to receive the award, which recognizes professional women and their employers.

About 400 people attended, including former Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus and Boise Mayor David Bieter, both of whom spoke at the event.

Johnson has been at CofI for seven years and has helped develop the innovative Environmental Studies program. She also directs the Heritage Scholar Program.

Johnson is involved in the off-campus community as well, by participating in Caldwell's downtown revitalization project and serving on the Indian Creek Festival Planning Committee. Her work in fostering collaboration between CofI and the city has received national attention and was featured recently at a meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.

Previously the Associate Editor of Women's Studies, Johnson has served on the governing committees of several professional organizations. The Association for the Study of Literature and Environment has elected her president for 2008.
