Grace Feiner ’21

This award recognizes a senior psychology major who has shown outstanding academic achievement and service to the field of psychology. The award is given in honor of Seena Granowsky who founded the Psychology Department in 1988. Granowsky was a superb colleague and faculty member. Her long record of strong teaching was recognized with the Daniels-Danieley Award for Excellence in Teaching. In addition to her long service to the Psychology Department, Granowsky also played an integral role in the development of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program and the Department of Education.

Feiner was nominated by her research mentor, Assistant Professor Sabrina Thurman, who shared this in her nomination: “Throughout our time working together, I have been wholly impressed with Grace’s intellectual curiosity, dedication, precision in all her experiences at Elon. For years, she has thoughtfully capitalized on educational opportunities at Elon and beyond to build a skill set intentionally designed to prepare her for her future. Her graduate and professional goals involve providing intensive support, Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, and similar evidence-based treatments and interventions to infants, toddlers, and young children with disabilities.”

Congratulations Grace on your remarkable achievements and thank you for all your hard work!
