EdD in KIN Doctoral Candidate Awarded Grant for Dissertation

Allen Adeimy is a physical education educator and athletic director at Ellerbe Middle School. Now in his fourth year as a doctoral student a part of UNCG’s EdD in KIN, he is working on his dissertation to complete his degree. His project focuses on Ellerbe Middle School’s in-school intramural sports program and its effects on school improvement. Adeimy has been running this program for the past four years and has seen firsthand the positive effects it has had on his students’ experiences. In his dissertation he hopes to empirically show the success of this program. 

We want to congratulate Allen as he was awarded a Bright Ideas Education Grant to fund this work. For more information on the Bright Ideas Education Grant check out their webpage here.
