David Pearson Scholarly Influence Award. The reason I do and disseminate research is to try to impact literacy education, particularly for children of poverty, so I especially appreciate receiving an award that focuses on scholarly impact,” Duke said. “The award is particularly special to me because I have such admiration for P.
