Natalie Glover

Natalie Glover bears no material resemblance to Wassily Kandinski. But the 23-year-old psychology graduate student has dealt with the abstract in ways that parallel this Russian abstract painter and art theorist. The most obvious parallel is that Glover is a painter too. And like Kandinski, she realizes the intrinsic value of art in dealing with matters of human nature; of reflecting not only what is aesthetically pleasing, but also what is internally revealing.

Janet Neisewander

Janet Neisewander spends a lot of her time with rodents and cocaine.
As strange as that may sound, the research the Arizona State University professor is doing with those two things may someday help people struggling with addiction.

Panayotis “Taki” Petrou

Growing up in Athens, Greece, Panayotis “Taki” Petrou knew he wanted to study in the United States when he was older.
Three of his uncles lived in America and his older sister had already left Greece for school in Chicago.
“I was finishing high school and thinking about college, and it had always been my dream to go to the U.S.,” Petrou said.

Tamika Zapolski

When Tamika Zapolski was searching for a doctoral program, University of Kentucky clinical psychology professor Gregory Smith was one of her first interviews. “I had several interviews after that, but I didn’t care about any of them,” she said. “I knew I wanted to study with Dr. Smith.”

John Yozwiak

“My family has always valued education. Therefore, attending college was very important to me,” Yozwiak said. “In part, I decided to attend the University of Kentucky because of the experiences my older friends were having there. Visiting them in their dorms when I was a senior in high school first exposed me to the variety of social opportunities available to students at UK, and talking with them about their experiences in the classroom revealed to me the rigor of their education. Attending the University of Kentucky also allowed me to not only stay close to my family, but also afforded me the opportunity to acquire an exceptional education on the beautiful Lexington campus.”
