DORED thanks three remarkable students

Graduating seniors Felicia Lawrence, Kristin Terry, Ashley Hopper

Graduating seniors Felicia Lawrence, Kristin Terry, and Ashley Harper, who have made excellent contributions to DORED.

The Division of Research and Economic Development celebrated three of its most valuable staff members today, outstanding student workers whom we’re losing to graduation next month — Felicia Lawrence, Ashley Hopper, and Kristin Terry.

  • Ms. Lawrence is graduating summa cum laude in Journalism and Mass Communications.  She will be returning to her native Chicago to pursue a career in modeling.  She worked in the Office of Research Services. Among her projects for DORED was the 2012 research video; she shot and edited the video and provided the narration and most of the script-writing.
  • Ms. Harper is a deans list student majoring in liberal arts with a concentration in cultural change and social development.  She will return to A&T next fall to study speech-communication.  She worked in the Office of Sponsored Programs.  Her twin sister is graduating next month from UNCG, and their mother is graduating at the same time from from N.C. Central.
  • Ms. Terry is graduating summa cum laude in Industrial and Systems Engineering. She will join GE Transportation in Erie, Pennsylvania, after graduation. She worked in the Office of Technology Transfer.  She is a member of two engineering honor societies and received the Outstanding Senior Award in Industrial and Systems Engineering.

All three have made outstanding contributions to DORED’s support of A&T researchers, and they’ve been excellent colleagues. We look forward to following their progress in their careers.
