Megan Tewksbury Earns KU Award

The Department of Psychology at Kutztown University hosted its annual Psi Chi Induction and Student Awards Ceremony Wednesday, April 10, 2024. The department awarded 11 seniors and one junior with departmental awards based on their individual achievements within the fields of research, fieldwork, internships, leadership, GPA and service.

Megan Tewksbury, of Meshoppen, PA is this year's recipient of the Scientist/Practitioner Award; this award goes to the person with excellence in fieldwork and research.

On her nomination, Psychology Professor Dr. Thomas Robinson wrote "she is the epitome of the ideal student: she studies hard and studies well; she's "book smart" but, most importantly, she has the special ability to accurately and appropriately apply that "book material" to real life with a level of awareness, sensitivity, and compassion that will make her a great therapist one day!".

Tewksbury served as a research assistant to Dr. Meghan Owenz for one year, from Spring 2023- Fall 2023, including spending the summer as a KU Bear. She participated in two projects: an intervention study to reduce mental health stigma and a multi-site study on inclusive teaching. "She was a fabulous assistant, managing participant recruitment and reimbursement, running focus groups, and analyzing data" wrote Dr. Owenz. Megan presented this research at the American Psychological Association's annual convention in Washington, DC in Summer of 2023.
