Alyssa LaBerge ended the year on a high note, racking up three well-deserved awards.
First, she was awarded the 2022 Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society Love of Learning Award! This national award fund post-baccalaureate professional development for active Phi Kappa Phi members. Love of learning is certainly apt for Alyssa, who will be using the funds for conference travel.
Second, she was awarded the Hiram E. Fitzgerald Engaged Scholar Fellowship. This award is conferred upon graduate students whose community engaged research or practice is focused on the study of or prevention of adverse childhood experiences.
Third, she was awarded a Commendation for Exceptional Effort in Community-Engaged Research from Michigan State University, in recognition of her community-engaged scholarship. Alyssa currently serves as project manager for the Juvenile Risk Assessment Team, a partnership between the ADJust Lab and Ingham County 30th Circuit Court- Family Division.
