Dr. Beth Kennard (center), professor of psychiatry and chair of the graduate school program in clinical psychology, and graduate student Alex Foxwell (right) award Scott Lacritz a certificate of appreciation for his efforts on behalf of the department and for people in need around the world. Scott, son of Dr. Laura Lacritz, associate professor of psychiatry, took leftover items from the graduate students’ garage sale fundraiser and sold them to raise nearly $1,200 for medical care and services for children in Ethiopia. Later, when the grad students organized a shoe drive, he held one of his own at Akiba Academy of Dallas, where he’s a seventh-grader. The gathered shoes, shoelaces and socks from the drives were donated to the Shoes for Orphan Souls program.
