The August graduation, held on the 12th of the month, marked the end of summer school, and the start of the Fall semester is little over a week away. In this posting, we list the accomplishments of HDFS students, staff, and faculty since our last posting in late June.
Two of our graduate students received their Ph.D.’s at the August commencement: Cassandra Huey (wearing gold cord), shown with her adviser Dr. Yvonne Caldera (left photo) and Andrea Parker, shown with her adviser, Dr. Mike McCarty (right photo).
Miriam Lieway and Cindy Martinez Garza received Master’s degrees at the same ceremony.
Dr. Sybil Hart’s research on sibling-rivalry was featured at inverse.com.
Finally, we have two items that were originally reported in the TTU College of Human Sciences’ “Internal Insights”:
“Instructor Stacy Johnson is awarded a grant from the Helen Jones Foundation for a project entitled ‘Creating Opportunities: Expanding Research and Training Environments for Faculty, Students and Community Professionals.’ This grant will be used to upgrade the equipment at the CDRC to be state-of-the-art for both observations and research endeavors.”
“Dr. Zhen Cong has been awarded a National Science Foundation grant entitled: ‘A multi-level dynamically coupled model for evaluating older adults’ vulnerability and resiliency to disasters.’”
