Dr. Pam Parry

Dr. Pam Parry, interim chair of the Department of Communication at Eastern Kentucky University, recently received the Applegate Award for Excellence in Research from the Kentucky Communication Association.

“This award means so much to me because the faculty in my department nominated me, and they were able to keep it a surprise,” said Parry, who has written one book and co-edited another in her first two years at EKU. “It is gratifying to have multiple colleagues take time out of their busy schedules to write a letter on your behalf.”
