Ami Boucher and Salina Judd received Kinitzer award

by Luke Ettinger ,

Exercise Science majors Ami Boucher and Salina Judd were both recognized and awarded (The Kinitzer) by the department for their contributions to advancing the ideals of the department.  Ami has been actively engaged as a researcher, representing the department at multiple scientific conferences throughout the Northwest including ACSM NW and Murdock Science Collaborative Research, as well as preparing a manuscript for publication.  Ami is currently developing a framework of service-learning opportunities specifically focused on engaging Exercise Science students with the wider Salem community with specific focus on local diabetes support groups. Over the last two years, Salina has taken great strides in improving ability of Exercise Science students to understand and utilize statistics through her work in the QUAD center, class visits, and personal help in the EXSCI hearth.  After graduation, she leaves behind a web-based resource which she developed to help EXSCI students with statistics for years to come (ready for use before the Fall, '17 semester).
