Erin Shaw, academic advisor in the Center for Academic Excellence, has been awarded the Dr. Barbara K. Townsend Memorial Scholarship at the University of Missouri. The scholarship is to be used to support the successful completion of dissertation research. Shaw’s dissertation research on community college transfer student experiences at a four-year university aligned well with the spirit of the award in an area of Townsend’s own research. Shaw began her Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis in January 2008. Before Townsend's passing in June 2009, Shaw had the opportunity to serve as her advisee.
