Faculty, staff recognized for achievements


Several faculty and staff members at Austin Peay State University announce their recent professional and scholarly activities.

Dr. Anna Filippo and Tracy Nichols, both faculty members in the department of communication, recently received a grant from Target to help underwrite a grant proposal for a Theatre for Youth Festival during the Tennessee Theatre Association's annual conference in Dickson. Fillippo is executive director of TTA; Nichols is chair of the Theatre for Youth Division of TTA. The grant proposal was written with a colleague from Eastern Tennessee State University, Melissa Shafer.

Dr. Brian Johnson, assistant vice president of academic affairs, gave a lecture Oct. 10 at Trinity Christian College on “What Can Faculty and Staff Do to Best Serve Students of Color.” It was designed to assist the University with its diversity efforts.

Dr. Carter Smith, assistant professor of criminal justice and homeland security, had two articles published in the summer editions of the Journal of Gang Research. One is titled “View from the field: The early days of military gang investigating” and the other is “Documenting the Pilot: the Military Gang Perception Questionnaire (MGPQ).”
