Alycia Cameron Named First John Tarnai Memorial Scholarship Winner
Alycia Cameron, Technologies Associate and Manager in the Center for Survey Research (CSR) at Indiana University, has been awarded the 2012-13 John Tarnai Memorial Scholarship given by The Association of Academic Survey Research Organizations (AASRO). The award, which is in its first year, provides a scholarship in memory of John Tarnai, former AASRO president, and recognizes a stand-out early career professional who is planning to pursue a career in survey research.
In nominating Alycia for the scholarship, Ashley Bowers, CSR Director, wrote that "Alycia possesses a high level of commitment to quality and innovation in survey research that I have rarely observed. Since joining the CSR, Alycia has demonstrated dedication to quality and innovation; commitment to professional growth and acquisition of new knowledge; and leadership ability that exemplify the intent of the Tarnai scholarship. During her time at the CSR she has taken the lead on developing standardized data collection procedures; worked to advance her understanding of survey research, statistics, and management; encouraged the professional development of others; and improved organizational effectiveness."
The AASRO Awards Committee cited Alycia for embodying all that John Tarnai stood for: leadership in producing high quality data, commitment to professional development of team members, and a drive to gain and share learning and knowledge. In the future, Alycia aspires to be the director of an academic survey research center. The Tarnai scholarship will further that goal by providing financial support to attend a professional conference related to survey research.
