PROMISE PhD Reception

This year we celebrate 4 outstanding women who completed their PhDs:
  • Stacey Williams, Pharmaceutical Sciences
  • Trudy Smith, Pharmaceutical Sciences
  • Marishka Brown, Pharmaceutical Sciences
  • Jocelyn Reader, Human Genetics
We had a cake reception for them on April 28, 2009, 12:30-1:30 pm, MSTF 316.
Each of them got a cupcake and a bell announcing their new Title "Dr. x"
Their mentors talked about their accomplishments and what a treat they have been in the lab. Their friends and PROMISE fellows also said nice things about them. It was a great time of celebration and friendship.
As the new PROMISE Coordinator, I've only known these women for a short time. However, from listening to the shared stories and observing their interactions, I see how these women have had great impacts in the lives of the other PROMISE fellows. PROMISE has brought people together for lasting friendships. I PROMISE to continue to provide the opportunities to cultivate such friendships and role models through our program.

Congratulations, Doctors! I look forward to attending your Doctoral Hooding Ceremony on Thursday May 14!

--Dr. Judith Pollack, PROMISE Coordinator at UMB
