We are pleased to announce that Mélise Edwards, Brooke Burrows, and Jasmine Dixon (pictured left to right) were chosen as recipients of the Wendy Helmer Graduate Student Award! The awardees' fellow graduate students recognized their important contributions in PBS and in the broader community. They have been strong advocates for racial justice, and have worked tirelessly to address inequities in our community.
This award is peer-nominated, given annually to PBS graduate students who work to improve the quality of life in the department and/or their program. This award recognizes passionate individuals who, like Wendy, have actively contributed to an environment that embraces inclusion, community, collaboration, mentorship, and social justice. It is given in honor of Wendy Helmer who was a beloved staff member in PBS who passed away suddenly in 2015.
Thank you, Mélise, Brooke, & Jasmine for your contributions!
