Jane Ellen Till came to St. Petersburg College in 2005 as a full-time associate professor in the Ethics department. Prior to that, she worked in the private sector as a human resources director and in sales and marketing for a number of companies.
Jane was one of the authors and editors of the Applied Ethics textbook. Colleagues say she always put her students first and never stopped learning and working toward being a better teacher.
She received her bachelor’s degree in human resource development from Oakland University in Michigan and her master’s degree in pastoral counseling from Marygrove College, also in Michigan. She passed away on Oct. 28, 2013 and is greatly missed by her family and colleagues.
Nick Manias will accept the award on Jane’s behalf.
