Amy Reedy '08 earns international sociology award for thesis

CC senior Amy Reedy's thesis garnered second place in an international sociology honorary society's undergraduate competition. Her senior thesis, "A Longitudinal Study of Female Gender Performance in the Classroom," was an award-winner in the Alpha Kappa Delta society's contest. She will receive the award at the American Sociological Association meeting in Boston this summer, and as a result of her award, is automatically placed in the ASA student honors program. "The award and the honor program are huge honors, but the paper in particular is beyond outstanding," said Gail Murphy-Geiss, CC assistant sociology professor. Reedy's thesis examines how students manage female status in the classroom and how teacher and student behavior reinforces gender boundaries.
