2016 Class of Mothers, Mentors & Muses Announced

Two School of Communication Studies Employees Among the Honorees

Mothers, Mentors and Muses is Kent State University Women’s Center’s signature event that recognizes Kent State University female-identifying faculty or staff who have made a significant difference in the life of a student or colleague.  More than 300 women across the university have received this honor.

This year’s 2016 class of honorees includes two individuals from the School of Communication Studies: Miao Liu, international program advisor and Jenny McCullough, assistant professor. The two women will be honored Tuesday, March 8, from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the Kent Student Center Ballroom.

On receiving this honor, McCullough said, “I am very excited to be honored with the other female-identifying faculty and staff at this year’s event.  I try to be available for my students and colleagues, and it is humbling to be nominated for impacting someone’s life in some way.  I hope to continue to have a positive, lasting impact on others since there are many people who have done the same for me.”

Liu shared McCullough’s sentiment and said, “I'm very grateful for the recognition as well as the great opportunity in the School of Communication Studies to help provide the international students a successful studying abroad experience.”
