We would like to acknowledge and indeed CONGRATULATE *Dr. Layli Phillips Maparyan* for being honored with the prestigious Elizabeth Hurlock Beckman Award! We are all SO proud of her and blessed to have her as our adviser. Thanks for truly being such an inspiration in our lives, and most importantly, providing your wisdom, encouragement, strength, and much needed support.
Jeremy Craig from GSU News explained: “The honor is awarded to current or former academic faculty members who have inspired their students to establish, on a lasting basis, a concept, procedure or movement that benefits the community at large. She joins 15 distinguished professors from across the country in garnering the award, and is the only awardee from Georgia. ‘The Beckman Award means a lot to me because it really validates the central mission of my teaching from day one – to inspire social change by providing students with the information and perspectives that make it possible,’ Maparyan said.”
We are forever grateful for such gifted, spiritual, and phenomenal woman!!
