Sarah Eagan, an OWL PhD student, has been selected as one of two graduate students to receive the UNL’s Research Mentorship Award in psychology. Sarah is known as a mentor among those in OWL. She has mentored (both officially and unofficially) numerous students at UNL in research. Sarah’s name will be placed on a plaque in Burnett Hall with past recipients of this competitive award.
“I have absolutely loved working with Sarah Eagan. She has made research a fun and educational experience for me and everyone in our lab. She comes to every meeting with a great attitude, and she is always extremely understanding if we have any questions about what we have to do for the week. She makes our lab feel like a collaborative effort, rather than just telling us what to do. She is incredibly bright, organized, and motivated and I would be honored to get the chance to work with her again in the future. She is a wonderful role model and I hope I can emulate her one day in my own field of research.” – UNL Student
