Comments from nominator:
Jessie O'Brien-Sheats: Dr. Sawyer goes above and beyond her requirements as an advisor. She is always looking out for the best interest of her mentees, sending information about programs, training, and opportunities for their growth. Dr. Sawyer provides the high support necessary for me to feel confidant moving forward in my program; I owe my success thus far to her!

Stephanie Ziegmont: Both these mentors have been extremely helpful and supportive during the dissertation process. They have made me think deeply about my focus and purpose for the dissertation. There is no way I would have gotten this far without them both. they both created a learning environment which enables me to think, process, productively fail, and work through the tough times, has developed my professional and academic growth. I appreciate their constant and continued support, expertise, and guidance.

Mentor comments:
Mentoring is investing in the next generation of scholars and practitioners. Mentoring provides opportunities for innovative thinking and approaches to issues, which is tremendously exciting. There is nothing more fulfilling than witnessing how a mentee grows in their skill and knowledge - and feeling blessed to have been a part of that journey.
