Wayne A. Foster, PhD, CCC-A/SLP
Wayne A. Foster, program manager for student intervention at Winston-Salem/Forsyth County (N.C.) Schools, will join the 2012 ASHA Board of Directors as chair of the Audiology Advisory Council (AAC).
Under the governance structure implemented in January 2008, the chairs of the Audiology and the Speech-Language Pathology Advisory Councils serve as full voting members of the ASHA Board of Directors. The chairs serve three-year terms and are elected on a staggered schedule.
Foster, who is dually certified in audiology and speech-language pathology, earned a master’s degree in speech-language pathology and audiology from the University of South Carolina. He earned a doctorate in child development at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro; one of his research interests focused on the language and early literacy factors associated with school readiness.
Foster was elected to the last ASHA Legislative Council, which transitioned into the advisory councils after the first year of his term. He was re-elected to the Audiology Advisory Council and served as vice chair. Foster also served on the Government Relations and Public Policy Board.
Foster served as president and in many other leadership roles for the North Carolina Speech, Language, and Hearing Association, and received its Honors in 2008.
In the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System, Foster directs a $19.6 million federal teacher-incentive fund grant project designed to improve the performance of 16 high-need schools.
