The Burt Horine RELI Scholarship is awarded to up to two entry-level professionals to attend the annual SEAHO Regional Entry Level Institute (RELI). The 2017 recipient of the $250 Burt Horine RELI Scholarship is Casey Roley from the University of Kentucky.
From the nomination:
Casey Roley is going into her second year as an RD at the University of Kentucky. In Casey’s two years, she has already made a HUGE impact on her community and our department. Even though Casey is in one of our smaller communities, she has made it a priority to know every resident’s name and follow up with them when she is aware of any transition or academic issues. Casey is incredibly genuine and always brings a positive attitude to everything she does. On top of her RD commitments, is active in our department training committees and volunteers as the advisor of MANNRS, which is a student group for underrepresented students within the College of Agriculture.
Casey is deserving of this scholarship because she will benefit from the RELI experience. Professionally, Casey always looks for ways to prepare herself for the next level and could benefit from the support that RELI provides. Casey is the perfect person to represent Kentucky and KAHO and has been involved in SEAHO since grad school.
