Nine of the young psychologists are seniors; two are only juniors. The girls will present their original research alongside undergraduates and graduate students at one of psychology’s most prestigious international annual gatherings. All proposals are "read blindly,” meaning the judges did not know they were reading the work of high school students. This swells the number of Sacred Heart APS invitations since 2019 to forty-nine!
Congratulations to all our young behavioral scientists!
