Dr. Janie Allen-Bradley, or Dr. A-B as former students affectionately called the revered retired faculty member, served Delta State for 13 years after decades in literacy instruction both at the P-12 and higher education levels. She served Delta State post-retirement through her involvement with the Barksdale Reading Institute. Her specialties in literacy education are children’s literature and phonics. She is credited with the publication of AlphaBuddies, an illustrated chart that assists teachers in introducing letter sound associations to learners. This publication was distributed in schools statewide several years ago and is still in use today.
