Congratulations to HIED PhD student Gabby Smith on being named the Southern Regional Education Board Doctoral Scholar. The SREB program’s goal is to increase the number of minority students who earn doctoral degrees and continue on to academic careers. Smith was the top choice in this highly competitive, university-wide competition. The award carries some monetary support as well as training and mentoring opportunities. Gabby Smith works with Dr. Felecia Commodore and her application for the SREB award was supported by Dr. Laura Smithers. Congratulations, Gabby!
