As such, Jessica is one of a small group of researchers worldwide who have used ground penetrating radar (GPR) on rock glaciers.&rdquo; Dr. Lillquist stated that over 27 years of mentoring and working directly with graduate students that &ldquo;Jessica&rsquo;s thesis is the best I have seen in terms of the incorporation of cutting edge technology, breadth and depth of scientific research, the climate change implications, involvement of student assistants, and societal relevance to our region in a time of environmental change&rdquo;.</span></span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,sans-serif"><span style="color:black">Ms. Sauriol was nominated by her committee chair, Dr. Roxanne Easley for her thesis, &ldquo;Russian Women Emigres after the Revolution&rdquo;.

Many of the émigré women writers she foregrounded are not well known, either in Russia or the West, and so she had relatively little scholarly criticism (or even translations) to draw on. The subjective experience of women immigrants is a timely issue, and Kaelen offers a fresh and insightful approach to this global topic. It is wonderful to see her hard work recognized with the Comstock Award.&rdquo;</span></span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><br /> <span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Verdana&quot;,sans-serif"><span style="color:black">Ms. Sauriol will be honored at the Graduate Student Hooding Ceremony on June 10.

She created a 12 lesson unit using English-Spanish picture books, discussions, and follow up classroom activities designed for collaboration between the school librarian and the preschool classroom teacher. The goal was to combine literacy instruction with social-emotional learning, specifically self-awareness and social awareness, aligning with the Washington State Early Learning and Development Guidelines, the Washington State Learning Pathways in Early Literacy (OSPI, 2016), the Washington Social Emotional Learning Standards, and the American Association of School Library Standards. We are excited to see these resources adopted more widely within the school community! </span></span></span></span></p> </p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:12pt"></span style="font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;,serif"></span style="font-size:11.0pt"></span style="font-family:inherit">2021 Winners of the Dale and Mary Jo Comstock Distinguished Thesis Awardhttps://www.cwu.edu/masters/node/2776Fri, 18 Jun 2021 11:12:42<p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">The CWU Graduate School proudly announces the co-recipients of the Dale and Mary Jo Comstock Distinguished Thesis award for 2021.&nbsp; </span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Each student will earn $750 and their thesis will be nominated for the WAGS Regional Thesis competition in the fall.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></span></span><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">The recipients are: </span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Morgan Rodriguez, (MS) Chemistry</span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Thesis title: <i>&ldquo;Selective Synthesis of Trans-fused Lactam-Lactones by Vicinal Difunctionalization of Readily Affordable Allylic Lactams&rdquo;.</i></span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Thesis chair: Dr. Timothy Beng, Chemistry department</span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Henry Jennings, (MA) History</span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Thesis title: <i>&ldquo;Sport, Kul&rsquo;turnost, and Physical Culture in the Khrushchev Era Soviet Union, 1953-1964&rdquo;</i> </span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Thesis chair: Dr. Roxanne Easley, History department</span></span></span></p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:107%"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Please join us in congratulating these outstanding students and their faculty.&nbsp;</span></span></span></p> </p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></p style="margin:0in 0in 0.0001pt"></span style="font-size:11pt"></span style="line-height:107%"></span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Former Master's Student in Geological Sciences highlighted in L.A.
