Doctoral student inducted into her high school’s Hall of Fame

Tyleen Caffrey, a doctoral student in Leadership Studies, was inducted into the Golden City High School Hall of Fame for “Academic Accomplishment” on Friday in Golden City, Mo.

A 1993 graduate of Golden City, Caffrey has three degrees: a Bachelor of Arts in Music, a Bachelor of Social Work and a Master of Social Work. A Certified Nurse Practitioner, Caffrey is pursuing a PhD in Leadership Studies at OLLU and teaches social work at Eastern New Mexico University.  

The Hall of Fame plaque cites, in part, the following: “As a former foster youth and first-generation college student, her research interest surrounds underrepresented, first-generation, and under-prepared social work students, and macro social work practice. In addition, she is conducting her research dissertation on the impact of deception of military impersonation.”
