"The child development department at HSU provided me with an exceptional foundation of understanding child development and family studies as a dynamic and interactive process. The department fostered an environment of meaningful relationships, inclusion and a sense of connectedness. I am beyond thankful for my time and experiences in this department. Currently I am a graduate student at Texas Tech University, expecting to graduate in Spring of 2021 with a M.S. in Human Development and Family Studies. I am also a graduate Research Assistant and plan to continue in the field of research."
