OCCRL GRAs Honored

by Eboni Zamani-Gallaher / Nov 11, 2014

Every year the College of Education at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign recognizes outstanding graduate students. On November 8, 2014, the Student Recognition Ceremony featured presentation of awards, fellowships, and scholarships that are competitively determined. Through generous contributions from alumni, former faculty of the College, and friends of the University deserving graduate students were honored for their academic merit, professional experience, public service, and commitment to the field of Education. Among the stellar student awardees at Saturday’s event, were five graduate research assistants (GRAs) from the Office of Community College Research and Leadership (OCCRL). It was a pleasure to see these talented students receive recognition for their hard work and scholarly activities. We proudly salute our exceptional GRAs for their academic honors and contributions to OCCRL!

Warmest congratulations to OCCRL/Pathways Resource Center GRAs.
