These awards are based off of the recipient’s performance throughout all of their years in the program and the winners are chosen by the department’s academic and clinical faculty members. All winners will receive a certificate to recognize their accomplishment and their names will be inscribed on plaques that are housed in the CSD administrative suite in McGannon Hall.

The awards and respective recipients were as follows:



Communication Sciences and Disorders Chair Travis Threats, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, was proud not only of the award recipients, but also of all of the CSD students at SLU.

“These students represent exemplars of the traits we are so fortunate to see in most of our students,” Dr. Threats said. “It is our honor that the faculty has so much difficulty each year deciding the recipient in each category. Thus, the students winning these awards really are the best of the best.”
