Congratulations to clinical program doctoral student, Maya Cook whose first-authored poster, "Father Involvement and Depressive Symptoms in a Diverse, Low-Income Sample of Unmarried Mothers" has been awarded a prize by APA Division 37 (Society for Child and Family Policy and Practice)! This award comes with a small cash prize as well as recognition during the awards ceremony at the APA Virtual Convention this week. Co-authors were undergraduate student Sean Duane, recent B.A. psych graduate Lindsey Siff, grad student Barunie Kim, and faculty member Dr. Christina Gee. Congratulations to all!
Congratulations to Applied Social Psychology doctoral student, Riko Boone, who has been chosen to be a member of The George Washington University chapter of the Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society.
The Bouchet Honor Society is named for the first Black person in the U.S. to receive a doctorate degree. Dr. Bouchet earned his Ph.D. in physics from Yale University in 1876. In announcing the award, the selection committee noted that it "was very impressed by [Riko's] academic achievements and believes [that Riko] shows great promise both as a scholar and as an advocate for those who have been traditionally underrepresented in the academy."
Riko and other honorees will be recognized at the GW Bouchet Lecture and Recognition Ceremony on Thursday, March 5, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. in the Amphitheater of the Marvin Center (3rd floor). All invited to the celebration. Also, CCAS will provide Riko with an all-expense paid trip to attend the 17th Annual Yale Bouchet Conference on Diversity and Graduate Education on April 17-18, 2020, in New Haven, Connecticut.
Congratulations on this well-deserved accomplishment and honor!
