HAYS – Ashley Lockwood, a Great Bend graduate student at Fort Hays State University, was recently named the student representative for the American Society of Criminology’s Division of Rural Criminology.
Lockwood, a clinical psychology major, earned a B.S. in psychology from FHSU in 2017. She is a graduate of Hoisington High School.
This division, which has an international focus, serves as a network of scholars striving to bring rural research to the forefront. In her role, Lockwood will assist the division executive board in providing appropriate mentoring and other activities and communications to assist students in their career development.
Her two-year term will end in 2021.
The Rural Criminology Division communicates virtually and also meets yearly at the national conference for the American Society of Criminology.
“I nominated Ashley to serve as the student representative for this division because she is a strong student and scholar within the field of rural criminology,” said Dr. April Terry, assistant professor of criminal justice at FHSU. “Ashley was named to this position earlier this month after she received the most support from other division members.”
