2014 Outstanding Anthropology Graduate in the Archaeology Concentration
Kalli Beasley is the 2014 winner of the Outstanding Anthropology Graduate in the Archaeology Concentration Award. Beasley is a dedicated student. She recently went to Mongolia for her archaeological field school with Dr. Houle. Last summer, she had an internship at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. This semester, she has been working at a cave in Barren County looking at saltpeter mining evidence with Darren Whitehouse. Among other projects, she has also volunteered at Living Archaeology Weekend. Beasley feels that Dr. Applegate, her advisor, and Dr. Hudepohl have been great mentors to her. Dr. Hudepohl's Medical Anthropology class "made a big impact," she says. "It showed that what I want to study is possible." Beasley plans to go to graduate school for medical geography and hopes to get a Ph.D. in medical anthropology.
