RECOGNIZING TOP GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS
Join us in congratulating Paige Wills as our outstanding graduate student and Kolbie Vincent as our outstanding undergraduate student for the 2020-2021 school year.
Paige Wills is completing her Master’s degree in Communication while working at the same time for UofL’s School of Public Health as a marketing and communication coordinator. Wills said her experience as a Communication graduate student has had a direct impact on her work at UofL. “I believe having the opportunity to be a graduate student gave me an advantage in my current position as I was able to see first-hand what it’s like to be a student at UofL. This gave me the opportunity to implement some of my experiences and those of my classmates into the work I do every day to help ensure we meet students’ needs and expectations.” The Department of Communication faculty salute Paige for being able to continue her professional work while simultaneously achieving excellence in the classroom.
The Department of Communication is also pleased to recognize Kolbie Vincent as our outstanding graduating senior. Kolbie is from Edmonson County, Kentucky and is graduating with a dual major in Communication and Psychology as well as a minor in Social Change. She said the best thing about being a Communication major has been the faculty. “They have truly been an inspiration and a constant support system these past four years.” Kolbie plans to continue her education at UofL by pursuing a Masters in Communicative Disorders so she can become a Speech-Language Pathologist.
Congratulations to Paige and Kolbie; our faculty, staff and your fellow students are proud of your achievements and wish you both the best!
