Monica was a recipient of an NWAV 45 Travel Award, which supported her trip to Vancouver, B.C. earlier this month to co-present ongoing research with Alex. Award recipients are also paired with a senior mentor, who is encouraged to maintain a lasting professional relationship with the awardee. Monica's mentor is Kirk Hazen.
Alex has just today been awarded one of three Presidential Honorary Memberships from the American Dialect Society. Each year, ADS members are invited to nominate outstanding students. Alex was nominated by his undergraduate professor Kathryn Remlinger. Alex receives four years of complimentary ADS membership and recognition at the Society's annual luncheon in January.
Please make sure to congratulate Monica and Alex in person if you see them!
