Two recent graduates from ATSU-ASHS’ Transitional Audiology program were named Professional Leadership Award recipients by the Audiology Foundation of America (AFA).
Award winner Johnnie Sexton, Au.D., ’10, has worked with children who are deaf and hard of hearing for 33 years, and was one of the first educational audiologists in North Carolina. He is also founder and chair of Project EARS, a non-profit foundation dedicated to issues related to children with hearing loss.
Award winner Kristiina Huckabay, AuD., ’10, served as clinic supervisor at Virginia Mason Center in Seattle, Wash., where she coordinated annual CEU conferences for the Listen for Life Center and a Dreambuilder’s Ball. She has also served as a faculty member at the University of Washington as a lecturer and clinical supervisor.
Both award recipients were nominated by the ATSU-ASHS Audiology program faculty and chair and submitted to the AFA for consideration. They were chosen based on their positive attitude, strong work ethic, involvement in professional activities, quality patient care, and services for underserved patients.
