Dean's Scholars

Annually, each department in the College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences picks one student for recognition as a Dean's Scholar. Honorees are selected based on their scholarly achievements as well as their contributions to the campus and local community. Because the Department of History administers both the history program and the social science program, it selects two Dean's Scholars. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Department of History picked Amanda Dean (History) and Mackinzy Wiseman (Social Science) for this honor.

Owing to the transition in instruction in spring 2020, the 2019-20 Dean's Scholars did not receive proper recognition. For History, Danielle Walls was honored, and in Social Science Kathleen Bailey, née Matthews, was recognized. Kathleen earned certfication to teach secondary social studies and has been working as a Resource Room Teacher assisting at-risk students.
