Angela’s Awardis a new award given and named in loving memory of, Angela Phillips, who lost her battle with drug addiction on Dec. 7, 2016. This award honors research and scholarship activities that explore, engage with, and encourage further research on social stigmas, stereotypes, or marginalized populations in order to promote a deeper understanding of—rather than simply reinforce—such stigmas. Angela’s brother, Mark Phillips, WJU chief of staff and Angela's sister-in-law, Dr. Amy Phillips, assistant professor of English, presented the award to Jonathan Haley for his project, “Adverse Childhood Experiences and Long-Term Health Problems.”
