In the fall of 2013, the School of Human Environmental Sciences awarded the first Alice P. Killpatrick Fellowships for graduate education. Made possible through a gift from the estate of Ms. Killpatrick, the fellowship recipients are selected each semester on the basis of academic achievement, potential for professional excellence, citizenship and leadership qualities and community involvement.
Four of the six 2016-17 Killpatrick Fellows recently presented their research as part of the monthly School of Human Environmental Sciences seminar series. Information about each of these students and their research topics is noted below.
- Alyssa Campbell, master’s student in the Department of Family Sciences, Rape Myth Acceptance
- Brodie Clark, master’s student in the Department of Retailing and Tourism Management, Consumer Response to Table Spacing in a Fast Casual Restaurant
- Amanda Westmoreland, doctoral student in the Department of Family Sciences, Recovery from Weight Loss Surgery
- David Weisenhorn, doctoral student in the Department of Family Sciences, Attitudes Toward Corporal Punishment
A new web page provides an overview of the Killpatrick Fellowship as well as information about all current and previous recipients. The web page highlights student research by featuring either the research emphasis or a link to the completed thesis or dissertation. Access the web page at: http://hes.ca.uky.edu/content/killpatrick.
