2020 Award Recipient

Kay McLennan (BSLS – Online)

“I was skeptical about taking an online economics course because economics is my worst subject and I was wary of discussion boards (in my previous experience, they have usually been a waste of time). However, Dr. McLennan set up the course extremely well and I have actually taken away a lot from this class (very surprising because my career is not related to economics at all!). …I thought the discussion board was one of the best parts of the class. It was a great place to apply my knowledge to real-world events. I also got to learn from other students about how they applied economics, which really expanded my perspectives…I even catch myself applying some of the economics concepts in my day-to-day interactions--something that I'd never thought I'd be able to do!”
