Mark Eddy Psychology Award

The Psychology Department has begun a new award, to be given during Academic Honors Day at the end of April each year.  The award is the Mark Eddy Psychology Award, named after Dr. Eddy, who came to GC in 2002 to teach in our department.  Less than a semester later, he was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer and given less than 1 year to live.  As a result, he was forced to retire, but he never stopped being involved in our psychology department.  He was on campus every week so he could remain as active as was possible; he met and helped many students throughout the remainder of his life.  His courageous battle with cancer ended January 30th, 2007.  Two of the most important and defining aspects of Dr. Eddy’s personality include his incredibly strong faith and his accepting, optimistic attitude, not only toward his own life circumstances, but toward all people.  Undoubtedly these characteristics sustained him and helped him live four years after his diagnosis, instead of the 6-12 months he was given.  Because Dr. Eddy embodies the characteristics we hope others in our field possess, we have established this annual award in his name, to be given to a graduating senior who best exemplifies Dr. Eddy’s spirit.

All graduating seniors majoring in psychology can apply.  Applicants submit the following materials to the department chair in May of their final semester at GC:

A current resume
A 300-500 word (approximately one to one a half pages typed) essay in which you describe how you have overcome an obstacle in your life within the context of faith.

If you have any questions, please contact any of the faculty in our department.

If you would like to make a donation to the Mark Eddy Psychology Award, please write your  check to:  Georgetown College with Mark Eddy Psychology Award included in the memo.  Checks may be mailed to:

Georgetown College Development Office
400 East College Street
Georgetown, KY 40324
