Jasmine Camp balances her classes in the school psychology program with her work as co-chair of Georgia State University’s Student Affiliates of School Psychology, the university’s chapter of the American Psychological Association’s Division 16.
She is also a graduate administrative assistant for TRIO Student Support Services, which works to increase the retention and graduation rates of Georgia State students who demonstrate academic need and who are first-generation, low income and/or have a documented disability.
Camp volunteered at Meals on Wheels with other students in her cohort – one of her favorite experiences in her program because she spent time with fellow students outside of class and connected with seniors around Atlanta.
“Volunteering energized us to be involved with the communities we’ll serve in our roles as future school psychologists,” she said.
Camp was recognized for her academic success at the College of Education & Human Development’s annual Honors Day Ceremony on April 22.
She is the 2021 recipient of the Outstanding School Psychology Student Award, which is given to students in the school psychology program in recognition of leadership, service, advocacy, scholarship and mentorship.
“I was shocked and surprised,” Camp said about her recognition. “This award makes me proud of my efforts to continue my growth as a practitioner and colleague, even in a very challenging year.”
