MATC Instructor James Augustine Wins National Funeral Service Teaching Award

April 7, 2010

James Augustine, Milwaukee Area Technical College instructor of funeral service and resident of the Town of Waukesha, has been chosen the 2009-2010 “Outstanding Educator” by the American Board of Funeral Service Education (ABFSE). He will receive his award at a luncheon at the organization’s annual conference April 16 in San Diego.

 

ABFSE is the sole accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation in the field of funeral and mortuary science. The organization establishes funeral service education curriculum requirements and conducts site visits to evaluate each funeral service program in the U.S. every seven years. Located at the West Allis Campus, MATC has the only funeral service program in Wisconsin.

 

Augustine has been a full-time funeral service instructor at the college for 34-1/2 years. He has served on the ABFSE for 26 years, and has held every office in the organization, including secretary, vice chairman and treasurer. When the board changed its structure in 2002, he became its first president. Augustine served as the chair of the curriculum committee for 14 years, and is now on the accreditation committee.

 

He has been a board member and treasurer of the University of Mortuary Science Education Association for 26 years and also served as a representative to the board of the International Conference of Funeral Service Examining Boards.
