Max E. AmeighFor the second consecutive year, Max E. Ameigh, part-time instructor of advertising art/ceramics at Pennsylvania College of Technology, will be honored in "Who's Who Among America's Teachers."

Ameigh's biography will appear in the 10th edition of the book. He was also honored in the ninth edition, published in 2005.

Teachers who are honored in the book have been nominated by a former student. Students listed in "Who's Who Among American High School Students," "Who's Who Among American High School Students Sports Edition" and "The National Dean's List" are invited to nominate a former teacher who has contributed significantly to their success and growth.

Ameigh holds a master's degree in art education from The Pennsylvania State University; he received a bachelor's degree from Lycoming College. Before retiring from his full-time teaching career, he taught at the Jersey Shore Area School District, Lycoming College and the Williamsport Area School District. He also taught continuing-education courses in ceramics at Williamsport Area Community College, a forerunner of Penn College, and owned and operated Ameigh's Ceramic Studio Supplies in Williamsport.

Among his other honors, Ameigh received a Part-Time Teaching Excellence/Distinguished Teaching Award from Penn College in 1998 and a Salute to Teaching Award from the Pennsylvania Academy for the Profession of Teaching in 1990. He was named Employee of the Month (Educator) in 1987 by the Jersey Shore Area School District.

According to "Who's Who Among America's Teachers," 5 percent of the nation's teachers are honored in each edition, and fewer than 2 percent are included in more than one edition.
