|Date: Thursday, April 17th, 2014||Return|
Paige is a FUSE student and has presented at the Southern Political Science Association, Kentucky Political Science Association and the WKU REACH conference. Her research on Congressional tweet retraction will certainly be published in a peer reviewed journal by the end of the year. In fact, it wouldn't surprise us if she graduated with more than one peer reviewed publication. If we were to bet on a student that would excel in graduate school, it would be Paige.
Selected as the Outstanding Student in International Affairs, Vannessa Allbright’s mentor, Dr. Timothy Rich, says that Vanessa is one of the most reliable, self-motivated students he’s had here at WKU. As a non-traditional student, she's clearly making up for what she herself has said was a rough younger life. Another mentor, Dr. Sol Kiasatpour, says “Vannessa is always ready to discuss key concepts and answer questions. She does not shy away from looking into alternative explanations as well”.
Major Stephen S. Trotter recipient of the Outstanding Student in Public Administration, has a graduate GPA of 4.0. His paper “The Annexation of America’s Mayberry” was selected as the 2013 Outstanding Masters of Public Administration Paper Dr. Victoria Gordon, Director of the MPA program, commented on Stephen’s excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, and note that his preparation for class routinely surpasses his peers.
