Congratulations Dr. Drew

Dr. Kay D. Drew completed her dissertation for the Ed. Doctoral Program at Lipscomb University. After two and a half years and earning the highest degree in education, Dr. Drew plans to explore her findings deeper and continue building community relationships. Her research on veteran use of their educational benefits at private and public colleges and universities in Tennessee will be published and available by January 2016. Experiencing this rigorous program has been beneficial to her in her profession and leadership.

She will walk at commencement on Saturday, December 19, 2015.

Congratulations to Dr. Drew! We applaud you and this milestone in your life!

We encourage you to caption your photo or to write a sentence or two with the event name, students pictured in the photo and the date it was taken. We do not guarantee that every photo will be used, but we look forward to seeing your pictures.
