Our very own sassy.sage (Dr. Scyatta A. Wallace) was recently selected to receive the Carolyn Payton Early Career Award from the American Psychological Association, Psychology of Women Division.

The award was for her recent publication “Gold diggers, video vixens and jezebels:  Stereotype images and substance use among urban African American girls.” The division selected this writing as making a significant contribution to the field.  

Dr. Wallace takes pride in devoting her scholarship, community activism, and art to addressing the needs of girls and young women.   She was honored at the American Psychological Association convention this month.
