Dr. David A. Eddins (UNC MS Audiology Class of ’88) was honored by the Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences as a Distinguished Alumnus at their annual graduation ceremony at the William Friday Center on Saturday, May 9th 2015. He also delivered the commencement address during the ceremony.  Dr. Eddins was introduced by a former undergraduate student at Indiana University and current UNC faculty member, Dr. Lauren Calandruccio. Dr. Eddins will be featured in the DSHS Summer 2015 Newsletter. Dr. Eddins noted the following:

“It was a thrill to receive this honor from my alma mater. I have been inspired by the terrific faculty in SHS. I developed a profound interest in speech and hearing as a UNC undergraduate student and a passion for research as a UNC graduate student. I can trace my professional roots to the program founders and continue to be inspired by current SHS faculty and students. Like UNC athletics, the UNC SHS tradition is strong and means a lot to me.”
