Two SLHS graduate students were recently recognized for their teaching, scholarship, and service by Dean Carmala Garzione and the College of Science. Alexander Tucci, MS, CCC-SLP, and Bryan Wong, AuD, CCC-SLP, both received 2022 College of Science Graduate Student Awards for the tremendous work they do.
Bryan was recognized for his teaching and scholarship. One of his nominators shared that Bryan "is a phenomenal teacher who creatively fosters a dynamic learning experience for his students." Bryan himself shares that "it is truly an honor to have my work recognized and I am overwhelmed with gratitude to have been nominated for both the teaching and scholarship award. I stand on the shoulder of giants, whose support, guidance, passion, and encouragement have allowed me to pursue opportunities that creatively shape students’ learning and expand the frontiers of hearing health research."
Alex was recognized for his service. One nominator wrote that Alex "has been an integral member of the student representation for our task force on Student Success." While working on his certificate of clinical competence, Alex led the way at his district in improving SLP assessment practices with children with communication difficulties. Alex shares: "I am so grateful to SLHS for nominating me for the service award. Being a part of efforts to educate current and future speech pathologists and to improve the state of the department and curriculum has been a wonderful experience. Since my undergraduate program, I have always tried my best to give back to those who have supported me and to leave the departments and programs in better states than when I arrived."
Congratulations to these very deserving members of the SLHS community.
