UCM's Amber Clifford-Napoleone honored as TRIO Achiever at Missouri-Kansas-Nebraska Regional Conference
A TRIO Achiever is an outstanding former TRIO participant who has received recognition within his/her profession or for outstanding academic achievement. They are individuals who have made significant civic, community, or professional contributions.
TRIO Achievers are recognized at the TRIO Achievers banquet at the Annual Conference being held Thursday, April 4, in Kansas City, MO. It is a special event that gives our TRIO community an opportunity to congratulate our alumni on their success. This award further serves as a source of pride in the knowledge that TRIO continues to make a difference in the lives of thousands of first generation and low-income students throughout the MO-KAN-NE region and the United States.
For 2013, the MO-KAN-NE Chapter will honor Amber Clifford-Napoleone. Amber participated in UCM's McNair Scholars Program in 1996. She holds her bachelor's and master's degrees in History from CMSU, a terminal master's degree in Museum Science from Texas Tech University, and a Ph.D. In American Studies from the University of Kansas. Amber is currently an assistant professor of Anthropology and serves as Curator of Collections at UCM.
Please join us in celebrating this honor with Amber.
