ASHA Journals Board honors professor with
2022 Kawana Award for Lifetime Achievement in Publications
The award recognizes a sustained history of exemplary publications by a scholar.
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Journals Board announced Professor Julie Washington as the winner of the 2022 Kawana Award for Lifetime Achievement in Publications.
"I am honored and humbled to receive this award from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s Journals Board," Washington said. "It is always special to be recognized by one’s peers."
With more than 30 years of contributions to the journal, Washington said, "I look forward to making many more years of contributions to the scholarly base of the discipline.”
The award, named in memory of Alfred K. Kawana, former director of ASHA publications, recognizes a sustained history of exemplary publications by a scholar whose journal contributions span at least 10 years and are meritorious in their educational, scientific, or clinical value, and have contributed greatly to the discipline. Washington's record of scholarship over a period of decades was a key factor in her nomination, including her contributions to ASHA and other journals.
The ASHA Journals Board nominates and selects recipients annually. The Board initiated the award in 1989.
