HDI's Burberry Award Honors Commitment to People With Disabilities

Published: Jun 25, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 25, 2013) — Emily Hogston, a University of Kentucky graduate student in the College of Education, is the 2013 recipient of the UK Human Development Institute's Paul Kevin Burberry Award.

 

The award is named in memory of Kevin Burberry, a young man from Berea who was a true Kentucky pioneer, both as a student with significant physical disabilities (from cerebral palsy), and as a leader and advocate for students with disabilities. Each year, HDI honors one exemplary student who has demonstrated a strong commitment to people with disabilities and to academic excellence.

 

As a practicum student, Hogston has been engrossed in the "Response to Intervention" process to ensure students get the educational supports that they need. She has worked to create a more inclusive and positive setting for all students within the schools. She has administered small-group social skills interventions and helped implement a "Girls on the Run" program to promote self-esteem for girls, both with and without disabilities, in grades 3-5. Hogston has also served as president of the UK chapter of the Student Association of School Psychologists. 

 

As a research assistant with HDI's Supported Higher Education Project (SHEP), Hogston has been able to work one-on-one with young adults with developmental disabilities, using differing approaches to enhance their strengths, to promote learning and to advocate for their future in the community. She has provided individualized tutoring and goal-setting assistance for several SHEP students, helping them to be successful in postsecondary education.

 

As an example, Hogston has tutored one student twice weekly for the past two semesters to help him prepare for online coursework through Eastern Kentucky University. The student has received high marks in both of his classes. When the student first entered SHEP, he was unable even to turn on a computer. He is now an avid user of PowerPoint and Word, and soon he will be learning Excel. He plans to take a class at the Leestown campus of Bluegrass Community and Technical College this fall.

 

“Emily has a passion for helping and empowering others," said Jeff Bradford, former SHEP project director. "She is always in a good mood and smiling. Her optimism and work ethic are an inspiration to all those who meet her. I cannot think of a better candidate to honor Kevin Burberry. I met Kevin on several occasions and I think he would be very proud to have his award associated with Emily Hogston.”
