A few weeks ago Semin Park, a 5th year Management doctoral student, stopped by my office with a twinkle in her eye and a box in her hand. The box contained a university pennant that she would pin to my wall showing academic placements. Semin proudly let me know she had accepted a tenure track position with the University of Iowa to begin the Fall 2019 semester.

Today I learned that Semin has won the “Lee Hakel Award.” This is a first place award that SIOP (Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology) provides in support of dissertation proposals in the field of Industrial / Organizational Psychology or a closely related field (such as Organizational Behavior). An exceptional accomplishment! Congratulations Semin!
