    Candace Jolly, a senior rehabilitation studies student at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU), recently received the inaugural Undergraduate Rehabilitation Student of the Year Award from the National Council on Rehabilitation Education (NCRE).

    In the past, the NCRE has only recognized a graduate student with an award.   Jolly received this first undergraduate award at the NCRE annual conference in San Francisco April 13.  Nominees must meet certain academic criteria as well as demonstrate outstanding service, leadership and advocacy.

    Jolly has spent several semesters on the Dean’s list and was selected as a rehabilitation studies program student of the month. She completed her practicum at the Centers for Exceptional Children and has an internship at The Enrichment Center. Additionally, Jolly participated as a research assistant for a grant-funded project and co-presented with WSSU faculty member Dr. Paige Dunlap at a local conference.
