Each spring, our home institution the University of Central Florida (UCF) sponsors the “UCF Libraries Annual Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Research” for the most outstanding student research essay published during the previous calendar year. The recipient of this year’s award is Tayler Truhan for her research paper on “Parentification in Deployed and Non-Deployed Military Families,” UCF URJ, 8:1 (Dec., 2015), pp. 1-11. Ms Truhan studied two small groups of children (ages 7-17) in two-parent military families in order to measure the levels of “parentification” in families with one parent deployed overseas compared to intact military families. Congratulations to Ms Truhan for her deserved award.
