Carolyn Massiah, lecturer in the Department of Marketing, was recently honored at the McKnight Doctoral Annual Fellows Meeting in Tampa. She received the 2011 William Jones Most Valuable Mentor Award. Massiah was nominated by doctoral student Rebeca Perren. “I enjoy working with the doctoral students in the Ph.D. program in the Marketing Department here at UCF. Their fresh view of existing theory provides motivation for me and my own research. Rebeca, a second year student, is a prime example of that. She is motivated and determined to succeed in this program. She has already presented her research at a national conference and is working with myself and Dr. Ron Michaels on two manuscripts for submission for publication. The joy and honor is truly all mine to be working with students such as Rebeca and I am honored that she believes I have been able to make a positive impact in her life,” said Massiah.
