Congratulations to recent Lehman grad Lisa Dazzell on receiving and accepting a full scholarship to attend Iowa State University’s Ph.D. program in counseling psychology. Dazzell graduated last week from Lehman’s Macaualy Honors College with a B.A. in Psychology and Africana Studies and a minor in Health Education and Promotion. For Dazzell, becoming an Africana Studies major in her junior year resulted in a major shift in her academic career. She was already majoring in psychology, but something about studying the history and culture of African Americans in the United States resonated deeply with her. “As an AAS student, I learned more about my ancestry and became proud and in touch with my Black roots,” explains Dazzell. “The experience has influenced me so much that I intend to dedicate my career as a counseling psychologist to helping Black and other under-resourced communities by providing quality mental health care.” Her research interests include race, risk and protective factors in the Black community, and the stigma associated with mental health in those communities. During her time at Lehman, Dazzell spent a lot of her time in the Office of Prestigious Awards (OPA) in Carman Hall, Rm. 188. It was her favorite go-to spot to connect with students and mentors and to discover new opportunities in competitive scholarships and awards. Also, it gave her a chance to catch up with her mentor, Professor Alice Michelle Augustine, director of OPA. “Throughout my four years, I could always count on her support and on keeping me well fed,” says Dazzell. #africanastudies #IowaStateU #PhD #mentalhealth #race #blackcommunities #blacksandmentalhealth #blackroots #macaulayhonors #lehmangrad2018 #lehmancollge

Catalpa trees are showing off on campus this week. The gold spots inside the flowers usually fade to purplish - but at ISU they turn cardinal instead - of course! #horticulture #catalpa #catalpaspeciosa #iowastateu #iastateu #iowa365 #ia365 #isuanrext
