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 2021-2022 academic year, the Department of History picked Katelin Hobbs (History) and Laura Olivia DeStanley (Social Science) for this honor.
