HOBOKEN, NJ--May 23, 2017--John Wiley and Sons, Inc. (NYSE:JWa) (NYSE:JWb), announces Jonathan Montano of San Bernardino Valley College, the winner of the WileyPLUS Student Partner of the Year Award. The award recognizes outstanding work by a WileyPLUS Student Partner. Student Partners collaborate with faculty to teach their peers how to use technology as a study tool.
Shortly after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Mr. Montano served over six years in the US Air Force working as a Special Operations, Air Commando, in support of search and rescue missions. This assignment took him into war zones and humanitarian hotspots. After leaving the Air Force, Jonathan pursued a degree in nursing; a career choice driven by his passion for serving others. Excellent grades and a natural ability to coach others earned Jonathan positions as both supplemental chemistry instructor and a WileyPLUS Student Partner.
In his role as a WileyPLUS Student Partner, Mr. Montano demonstrated exceptional commitment and determination by delivering fifteen training presentations as well as leading weekly study sessions with peers. Moreover, he liaised between faculty and students to provide powerful insight into classroom challenges.
San Bernardino Valley College Professor Alicia M. Doyle said of Mr. Montano, "I met Jonathan a few years ago, and no matter what struggles he goes through personally, he is always there for the students and faculty. Jonathan is amazing and truly cares about the students at our school."
"Wiley congratulates Jonathan Montano on his achievement and is pleased to have his support as a Student Partner once again this coming academic year," said Nicole Dingley, Senior Customer Success Marketing Manager, Global Education at Wiley.
