I am an English major with a double minor in marketing and psychology, and I aim to become a creator in brand marketing, specializing in writing, design, and photography-- whether it is as a freelancer or as a part of a team.

As an honors student, I am involved in many activities across campus, including holding two internships and a job on campus.

I am an undergraduate student at Eastern Kentucky University majoring in Health Services Administration with a minor in Business. After I graduate in May of 2022 I plan on attending graduate school and continuing my pursuit of learning more about the healthcare field. I am actively searching for full-time, or part-time jobs to begin after graduation within my career. I am passionate about clinical research and want to pursue work as a hospital administrator or manager as I continue to build my resumé. I am a Governor’s Scholar Program Alumni and a current Phi Kappa Phi member. I have served an AmeriCorps service term at God's Pantry Food Bank and at Cliffview Retreat Center where we built a community garden.

A pianist of international acclaim, Dr. Galit Gertsenzon is a music historian, educator, and advocate for music and musicians of the Holocaust. Born and raised in Israel, Galit studied piano performance and musicology at the Buchman-Mehta School of Music in Tel Aviv. Since 2001, Dr. Gertsenzon has performed music by composers, such as Pavel Haas and Viktor Ullmann, who were murdered in the camps. Audiences around the globe have enjoyed Galit’s music, presented solo and in collaboration, at venues including Carnegie Hall, where she debuted Gideon Klein’s Piano Sonata in 2005 (performing again in 2008), and the Bundestag.

 

For nearly a decade, Dr. Gertsenzon has studied music from the cultural, political, and social aspects of those who make it. Earning her Doctorate in Musical Arts in Piano Performance from the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music in 2012, Galit’s research continues to examine the compositions, performances, and musicians of World War II and the Holocaust. Her ethnomusicological insights and applications are featured in the peer-reviewed literature of music, Judaic studies, and higher education. 

 

Dr. Gertsenzon is an Honors College professor at Ball State University (Indiana), where she delivers global studies curricula integrating music and politics. Named the recipient of The Vander Hill Distinguished Honors Educator Award (2018) for her course, Forbidden Sounds: Music of the Holocaust, Galit’s teaching is acknowledged as innovative and inclusive; her pedagogical approach influencing the growth of students and subject matter alike.

 

Dr. Gertsenzon’s sustained scholarly record follows a trajectory of knowledge, appreciation, and remembrance. She delights in sharing her understanding of, and evergreen enthusiasm for, the extraordinary music and musicians of the Holocaust.

How do you define your role as a director at your university/college, and how does this align with your university’s official position description? How was your work as director evolving before the pandemic? How do you see yourself now as the director of your program/college, and how do you wish to redefine yourself as the director?

In what ways do you consider health and well-being when developing or revising honors courses and curriculum? How can we encourage students and faculty/staff to consider and attend to health and well-being and communicate with one another about self-care and balance while also creating honors-level work? What have you observed that brings your students and/or faculty/staff energy? Can these observations help us reimagine program outcomes?

All NCHC members are encouraged to attend this address and the Business Meeting. Members will also have the opportunity to meet and nominate candidates for the 2022 Board of Directors.
