Speech and Hearing Sciences undergraduate students Lee Buenviaje and Jamie Ragsdale were just notified that they each won a PROGENY award from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association for the posters they each submitted to this year’s convention.

From the ASHA web site: "The purpose of PROGENY is to encourage the development of young scientists in communication sciences and disorders, and to highlight undergraduate research efforts. PROGENY pairs faculty researchers with undergraduate students who are first authors on poster presentations at the annual ASHA Convention. PROGENY highlights and supports the work of these undergraduates by providing them with an opportunity to talk with experienced scientists about their research, and about pursuing an academic-research career."

Lee currently works as a student employee in Dr. Cathy Binger’s lab.  Jamie has also worked as a student employee in the lab, and is currently enrolled in an independent study class with Dr. Binger.  Congratulations, Lee and Jamie!
