As Research Coach for McNair students – and others as well, I want to provide useful materials through my site.  The Director of the program is Kevin Ung.  We both have a desire to work with students and assist them for planning their present and future academic works.  I have been appointed to this position and it is still in the early stages.  Therefore, I am not fully knowledgable as to what all the position will ultimately entail.  As the position is evolving that will become clearer and more obvious.

The McNair Scholars Program will work with 25 juniors and seniors annually to help them prepare for graduate school. The program provides eligible undergraduate participants with summer research internships guided by Lee faculty mentors, seminars, conference travel, presentation opportunities, and assistance obtaining financial support for graduate education.

A federal grant attained from the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) has made this possible. The program is named after an American physicist and NASA astronaut who died during the launch of the Challenger space shuttle in January of 1986. The goal of the DOE program is to increase the attainment of PhD degrees by students from underrepresented segments of society, particularly those with strong academic potential coming from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Below is a quick glance to tell a bit about me and my background.  See my Curriculum Vitae for more information.

  • Undergraduate degree in Psychology – minor in Theology from Palm Beach Atlantic University;
  • My masters degree is in Information Science from Florida State University;
  • The doctoral program I attended was in University of Tennessee Knoxville, where I attained my PhD in Education / Instructional Design & Technology
  • A few years after completing my PhD, I decided to join Lee University’s TESOL program – where I attained my TESOL Certification.

Obviously, learning is something that I enjoy.  I would like to be one that cultivates the same interests in students and Lee. My objective is to help students on a daily basis to move forward and to do so with excellence.
