Christian educators recognize two Presbyterians.

Rev. Anne Yee Hibbs, area educational consultant for the Synod/Synodical of Southwestern Ontario, was installed as president-elect of the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators at the group's January meeting in Norfolk, Va. Ms. Hibbs, who says she is "deeply humbled" by the recognition, will begin her one-year term at APCE's annual meeting in February 2005 in Vancouver.

Also at the Vancouver meeting, Dorothy Henderson, associate secretary, Education for Discipleship, Life and Mission Agency, will be recognized as Educator of the Year for 2005. Ms. Henderson says she was speechless upon learning about the award, adding that the past winners "have always been amazing role models" for her.

The APCE describes itself as "a professional organization concerned with the advancement of education in the church, committed to the ongoing witness of our faith in the gospel." The association is a partner of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), The Presbyterian Church in Canada, The Reformed Church of America and the Christian Reformed Church and has about 1,800 members from Canada and the United States.
