A faculty member and a student in WKU’s Communication Sciences and Disorders Department were honored at a state convention recently.
Instructor Janice Smith and graduate assistant Elizabeth Ebelhar were recognized at the Kentucky Speech-Language-Hearing Association Convention in February.
Smith received the Johanna B. Hancock Award for demonstrated outstanding dedication and service to the KSHA as a member of the executive council. She is the KSHA treasurer and co-chair of the quarterly publication The Communicator.
Eblehar, of Owensboro, received the Bev Stanley Award, a $2,000 scholarship awarded annually to a Kentucky student demonstrating excellence in graduate studies in communication sciences and disorders. Eblehar is also employed by the Michelle P. Waiver Program and provides support for a student with a rare genetic syndrome. She is also active in WKU’s Habitat for Humanity Chapter. Her plan is to become a traveling speech and language therapist providing services in high-risk areas.
