We also wanted to honor Maryhelen MacInnes for her six years of service to the department. Dr. MacInnes will be leaving the department at the end of this summer to move to Boston where her family resides.
MSU Student Life recognizes a Leader of the Year to a student who demonstrates leadership to the College of Social Science, the Department of Sociology, and the larger Michigan community in extraordinary ways. A certificate of recognition was given to undergraduate senior Corey Austin for his diverse service to the community at large.
