Harrisonburg, Va — James Mason University (JMU) has awarded the 2011 Roger Ruth Memorial Fund Student Research Awards to three JMU graduate students. The fund is supported by individual donors, as well as an ongoing financial commitment from Oticon Inc.

Doctor of Audiology students Verleyne Andrews (pictured left) and Kristie Meehan, (right), and PhD candidate Annie Hogan, (middle), were honored at a special ceremony at the Ruth Symposium in October.

The Roger Ruth Memorial Student Research Awards were created in memory of Dr Roger Ruth (1950 – 2009) for his tireless efforts to promote student research as an integral part of graduate education in audiology.

The awards are designated for use in support of multiple annual audiology student research projects conducted at JMU.
