Western Oregon University has selected Kimberly Jensen, professor and
head of its history department, as the recipient of its annual Mario and
Alma Pastega Award for Excellence in Scholarship.

“Not only is she a skilled historical scholar, she is a gifted mentor
in involving undergraduate students in historical research,” said
Stephen Scheck, dean of the university’s College of Liberal Arts and
Science. She is the author of “Mobilizing Minerva: American Women in the
First World War”, one of the editors for the Oregon Encyclopedia of
History and Culture, and on the Organizing Committee of Century of
Action, the group leading the celebration of woman’s suffrage in Oregon.
She is also a member of the Oregon Heritage Commission.
