A special Congratulations to Kenda Parsons. Kenda is a student in the Department of Cognitive Science and is one of two students awarded.

Kenda will be working in Dr. Kamawar’s lab, developing a study on preschoolers’ ability to think about the future and their saving behaviours. The title of the project is “Future-Oriented Cognition: Saving and Other Related Skills.”
