Kristin Hausstein Wins the 2009 Library Prize!
Kristin will receive a $500 award, which will be presented at the annual Caudill College of Humanities Awards at 4pm on Thursday, April 23rd, in Button Auditorium. Kristin completed the winning paper for her Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Communications. Her faculty sponsor was Dr. Robert E. Frank.
Kristin Hausstein was born in 1988 in then-communist East Berlin, Germany. When she was 15, she decided to become an exchange student in the United States, and a lovely Kentucky family took her into their home. After receiving her high school diploma from West Carter High School in Olive Hill, Kristin saw the possibility of coming back to the U.S. and enrolled at Morehead State University. She is now a junior in pursuit of a double major in Sociology and Communication with emphasis in Ad/Pr. Her plans for the future are to continue her fellowship with Dr. Robert Frank, who sponsored her prize-winning paper, and whom Kristin describes as a “great mentor” to her. She also plans to attend graduate school. Once finished with school, Kristin hopes to find a job in research or event management that allows her to travel the world.
Kristin proudly displays her winning paper.
Kristin is congratulated by Ray Bailey,
Chair of the Prize Advisory Committee.
