What's your title, and what do you do on your job? And how many years have you been at FLC?

I work for a federally funded non-profit here on campus called TRiO Talent Search. We identify students with great potential in middle school and high school, a majority of whom are first generation (neither parent went to college) and/or facing financial challenges, and we help them advance to college.

I am the Director of the Leadership Center, and I arrived at FLC in August 2007. I supervise five amazing staff who are committed to student development in several ways. I appreciate not only their expertise but also the passion and energy they have for making positive impacts in the lives of our students.

Physics professor Ryan Haaland announced as 2014-15 Featured Scholar

Ms. Kami Parrish-Larson named winner of Outstanding Staff Award

Ms. Kami Parrish-Larson named winner of Outstanding Staff Award

Hands-on learning and research are so important to students at Fort Lewis College, and those opportunities wouldn’t happen as well as they do without Biology Lab Coordinator Kami Parrish-Larson. She does everything from prepping freshman labs to helping senior seminar students find and use lab and field equipment. It’s a ton of work, but it’s something Ms. Parrish-Larson particularly enjoys.

Fort Lewis College Assistant Professor of Chemistry Dr. Kenny Miller, the 2014-15 Alice Admire Outstanding Teaching Award winner, had options as to where he wanted to teach, but he chose a small undergraduate school like Fort Lewis College because he felt he could have the most impact on his students here.

Dr. Marcelyn Jung named winner of 2014 Achievement Award

Dr. Marcelyn Jung named winner of 2014 Achievement Award

Associate Professor of Exercise Science and Gender & Women’s Studies Dr. Marcy Jung’s career at Fort Lewis College is filled with impressive achievements. From the 1988 FLC Volleyball team she coached being inducted into the FLC Athletic Hall of Fame to years spent working on campus wellness initiatives to offering the Commencement invocation each year. It’s accomplishments like these that earned her the 2014-15 Fort Lewis College Achievement Award.

Dr. Kelly Jenks named winner of 2014 New Faculty Teaching Award

Dr. Kelly Jenks named winner of 2014 New Faculty Teaching Award

Some might think that we already know pretty much all there is to know about the past, especially the history of this country. Assistant Professor of Anthropology Dr. Kelly Jenks, however, always felt that there was more to history than what she was taught growing up. From an early age, the 2014-15 Fort Lewis College New Faculty Teaching Award winner felt the need to study the past, particularly that of the Southwest, in order to help others learn about their heritage and gain a new and deeper perspective on the world.

Dr. Tino Sonora named 2013-14 Featured Scholar

For Associate Professor of Economics Dr. Tino Sonora, the 2013-14 Fort Lewis College Featured Scholar, the study of economics is sometimes complicated, but also deeply interesting and, yes, even fun. Choices made, even a world away, can have ripple effects across the globe, felt right to our doorsteps. Understanding the effects of choices is what drives Dr. Sonora.
