Andersen receives doctoral award

By Patrice Scott

Lori Andersen, assistant professor of curriculum and instruction, received a doctoral student award in November for a superior degree of scholarship from the National Association for Gifted Children, or NAGC, at its national conference in Indianapolis.

Andersen was nominated for the award by Jennifer Cross, assistant professor of research at The College of William and Mary.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized for superior scholarship by the national organization in my field,” Andersen said. “I look forward to building on my dissertation research at K-State and collaborating with STEM colleagues.”

Andersen earned her doctorate from The College of William and Mary then joined the K-State faculty this fall. Her research interests include talent development and science teacher development.
