Dr. Dawn K. McCrumb is an associate professor of health and physical education in the Department of Physical Education, Sport Studies, and Gerontology and serves as the director of the Health and Physical Education Teacher Licensure Program. She currently serves on a variety of American Heart Association’s North Carolina committees that strive to improve the quality of life for citizens by advocating for effective physical education programs and healthy food choices in public schools. She received the Governor’s Award for her many hours of volunteer work with the American Heart Association in the state of Maryland.

McCrumb graduated from Salisbury University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Physical Education and a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction. She has had the opportunity to teach kindergarten through high school and coach field hockey and softball at the high school level in which her teams won state championships. She later returned to her alma mater to teach and coach the varsity softball team.

She earned her doctorate from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Va., where she studied with Drs. George Graham and Michael Metzler, two leaders in the field of effective teaching for elementary and high school physical education. While at Virginia Tech, she was named the Graduate Teaching Assistant of the Year and was later asked to serve on the faculty as an instructor and coordinator of the student teaching experience for the physical education majors.

Currently, McCrumb co-edits a section of PECentral.org, an award-winning website for physical educators, with her colleague Dr. Claudia Duncan. A regular presenter to both local elementary and middle school physical educators during teacher workdays, McCrumb continues to develop a very collaborative relationship with the teachers in Wilson, Nash, and Johnston County.  Many of her students have gone on to earn Master’s degrees, National Board Certification, and Teacher of the Year awards for their schools. McCrumb is particularly proud of these great accomplishments by her graduates.
