Jeff Lash earned a B.A in Art History from the University of Texas at Austin and master’s and doctoral degrees in geography from Texas State University at San Marcos. He has taught geography and GIS courses at the University of Houston-Clear Lake since 2001. Jeff is a two-time Fulbright Scholar (University of Belgrade 2009, University of Johannesburg 2019) interested in human development through geography education. He is an active member of the Texas Alliance for Geographic Education. He joined NCGE in 1994. NCGE has recognized Jeff’s professional contributions to geography education twice; first with a “Dissertation of the Year” award in 2002 and again in 2012 with a “Higher Education Distinguished Teaching” award. Jeff has served on the NCGE Board in various capacities since 2006, becoming Treasurer in 2017. Jeff is married to a social worker and loves traveling with their three young boys.
Over the last twenty years, my work with NCGE has evolved from graduate student volunteer to Treasurer. I have accepted the nomination for President-Elect with honor and enthusiasm because NCGE plays a central role in the professional development of geography educators. If elected, my goal will be to expand and diversify NCGE’s membership by strengthening partnerships with state and national geography education organizations.
