Congratulations to Sarah Henderson on receiving the Wendy Murphy Memorial Award from the Department of Psychology at Brock. This special honour is awarded annually to a student in the department who shows consistent academic excellence and collegiality. Sarah is not only a talented scientist, but a kind and caring individual. She has helped to mentor junior students in the lab and department, organizes our annual 'adopt a family' during the holidays, and volunteered with Therapeutic Paws of Canada for years with her late golden retriever, Ollie. Thank you for all that you do, Sarah!
In addition to some great science, the Campbell lab has been busy this summer with some fun social events. In May, we raised $2,928 for the Alzheimer's Society of Niagara by completing their annual fundraising walk. Every Monday night, you can find a bunch of us playing softball with Niagara Rec Sports (so far, it seems like none of us should quit our day jobs). And in June, we had our annual potluck BBQ - Beechwood donuts & brownies for all!
Congratulations to Tiago Guardia (centre), Brent Pitchford (left), and Kristen Baker (right) on receiving their PhDs in Psychology at the June, 2023 convocation. Proud supervisors (Karen Arnell, Karen Campbell, and Cathy Mondloch) were also in attendance.
Congratulations to Emily Davis who recently received not one, but two awards! First, an Ontario Graduate Scholarship to help fund the final year of her PhD. Second, the Wendy Murphy Memorial Award from the Department of Psychology at Brock, a special honour awarded annually to a student in the department who shows consistent academic excellence and collegiality. If you know Emily, you know that she typifies this latter award. Thanks Emily for all you do!
Congratulations to two of our honours thesis students, Hannah Thomas and Kwasi Duah, for being awarded Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council Undergraduate Student Research Awards for this summer. Hannah will work in the Campbell lab looking at the effects of stereotype threat on memory in older adults, while Kwasi will work in Dr. Caitlin Mahy's lab looking at future thinking in children. Watch this space - these two are going places!
