NCCU School of Education shines the spotlight on Communication Disorders graduate student Chelsea Privette, who in April 2014 was named one of twenty-nine North Carolina Albert Schweitzer Fellows. The fellows will spend the next year learning to effectively address the social factors that impact health, and developing lifelong leadership skills. In doing so, they will follow the example set by famed physician-humanitarian Albert Schweitzer, for whom their Fellowship is named.
Communication Disorders associate professor Dr. Sandra Jackson serves as Chelsea’s academic mentor and has helped her with the program, providing input throughout the summer and will continue to advise and supervise Chelsea through this academic year.
Per Barbara Heffner, Director, Albert Schweitzer Fellowship - North Carolina, “Her motivation for developing her Schweitzer project, Realizing Identity through Success and Experience (RISE), and the work she is doing with minority teens is so inspiring. Her academic mentor, Dr. Sandra Jackson, is playing an integral role in Chelsea's success and we appreciate her long term participation in the Fellowship. We are deeply grateful for NCCU's support of such an impressive Fellow!”
