The Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence, RI, recently honored SNHU online grad student Kate McCaughey as one of seven former members of the clubs who were inducted into their Alumni Hall of Fame. The inductees credit their childhood experiences in the Boys & Girls Clubs as playing a pivotal role in the success they have achieved in their lives.
McCaughey’s early years in the Boys & Girls Clubs led to her enjoyment in working with children as well as her involvement in community service efforts. She regularly volunteers with Special Olympics Rhode Island, Easter Seals, Toys for Tots, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and other nonprofit service organizations.
A 2010 graduate of Southern New Hampshire University with a bachelor’s degree in communications, McCaughey was crowned Miss Rhode Island USA 2011. She is currently completing her online master’s degree in marketing.
Five SNHU students were awarded scholarships by the Anita Borg Institute to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration in Houston this year.
While the titles may sound similar, and some job functions are the same, the educational paths for psychiatrists and psychologists are quite different.
October was online student engagement month, with a full roster of activities and events to introduce clubs and organizations, and provide chances to get involved.
