Psychology Students Volunteer at Local Schools

Lee University psychology students, along with their psychology professor Dr. Heather Quagliana, recently volunteered at Prospect Elementary School. The Lee students did art projects with the children to help teach emotional labeling and coping. This hands-on work allowed Quagliana’s students to “put their psychology skills into action.”

 

Quagliana has partnered with Prospect Elementary, specifically Mrs. Beth Sargent's class, over the past four years with several of Quagliana’s Capstone and Childhood Disorders classes. She is dedicated to serving the children in the Cleveland community and seeking ways for her students to apply their psychological skills in service-based settings.

 

"One of the most important aspects of my job at Lee is to teach my students to live a life of service and to show them the practical ways psychology can serve our Cleveland and Bradley County community," said Quagliana.
