Ran Meyer Receives Mick Doherty Kairos Award

2020 Winner of the Mick Doherty Kairos Award: Ran Meyer

Third-year member of the Rhetoric & Writing PhD program Ran Meyer has been named the 2020 recipient of the Mick Doherty Kairos Award.

The late Mick Doherty graduated from the Rhetoric & Writing Program in 1994. The Mick Doherty Kairos Scholarship was established to help provide educational expenses for Graduate Assistants in the Rhetoric and Writing Doctoral Program of the Department of English at Bowling Green State University, in honor of his memory.  

A Northwest Ohio native, Ran graduated from Tinora High School and, after military service, from The Defiance College, majoring in English and Secondary Education.  He holds a Ph.D. in English and a J.D., has practiced law as a litigation and education-law attorney for many years, and has taught college-level English for over two decades.  In his view, the ideal classroom is an active, student-centered community of learners and a democratic center of inquiry that fosters curiosity, openness, engagement, creativity, persistence, responsibility, flexibility, and metacognition.  A few of his non-academic pursuits include rescuing German Shepherds, gardening, coaching, wandering, and wondering.
