Our own lab member, and soon to be lab alumna, Chelsea Adams, has been featured in this UKnow story. Chelsea joined our lab five years ago as a sophomore. This weekend we celebrate her Master’s degree and her enormous contributions to the research our lab conducts. Because of Chelsea, we have been able to shed light on academic motivation in rural Appalachia. This is why we are a diverse team. And this is evidence that even the newest member of our can expand our horizons in ways we couldn’t imagine.
