Student Research Award winners announced

Graduate and undergraduate papers chosen from 50 entries

Josh Prieur, graduate winner
Kristina Petkovic, undergraduate winner

Lynn Library announced the winners of its third annual Student Research Award from approximately 50 entries at the Published Faculty Reception, April 19.

“It was a very good pool—the research was solid, the work investigative,” said Amy Filiatreau, directory of the library. “These students have reached deep within themselves and deep within the library databases to produce research papers that are the best of student work at Lynn.”

• Graduate student winner is Josh Prieur, who wrote “Take a Stand – Social Injustice – the most challenged learners and the newest educators, an appropriate combination?” In it he demonstrates that our least experienced teachers are often teaching those who need the most help, while experienced teachers regularly leave these students for advanced placement classes where they can earn bonuses.

• Undergraduate student winner is Kristina Petkovic, who wrote “Attachment in Infancy and its effects in adulthood.” In it she analyzes the bond between infants and their biological parents versus adoptive parents, and how such attachment can impact adult relationships. She further questions our current adoption system, and whether such a system actually harms children’s and adults’ ability to form secure relationships.

This year three honorable mention winners were also chosen: Ida Langer, Balca Elif Sagmanli and Jennifer Torres.

The winning papers and the papers awarded honorable mentions are posted here.
