The College of Education, Health and Human Sciences (CEHHS) is proud to share that two members of our college have been awarded Engagement and Outreach Mini-Grants from the Office of Community Engagement and Outreach. The mini-grants were awarded during the Engagement and Outreach Conference, “Building University-Community Relationships: More than One and Done” held on October 8th & 9th in the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy and at the United Way of Greater Knoxville.
Welcoming remarks speakers included our own Dean Bob Rider. Bob Kronick, Professor in Educational Psychology and Counseling and Director of the University Community Schools Program shared in the panel discussion about community engagement and outreach in action.
Two out of ten of the mini-grants were awarded to a faculty member and a student in our college during the Poster Session. One was awarded to Lyndsey Hornbuckle-Lampkin, Assistant Professor in Kinesiology, Recreation and Sport Studies for her work on “Effect of Partner Support During Exercise in African–American Couples: Community Board Analyst.” The second was awarded to Graduate Research Assistant, Margaret Crewdson, who works with the FUTURE Program; a Postsecondary Education Program for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
CEHHS congratulates both recipients.
