Massasoit Community College Student To Be Celebrated At Ninth Annual Kingston-Mann Awards Banquet
Middleborough resident, Jessica Moquin, recognized for research in diversity and inclusion  
November 18, 2013
Brockton, MA - Dr. Charles Wall, President of Massasoit Community College, is pleased to announce that Massasoit student Jessica Moquin of Middleborough is one of the recipients of the Kingston-Mann Award – an award established and granted by UMass Boston. Jessica was selected for the award after submitting a research paper on issues of diversity and inclusion. Her piece, entitled “Human Services for the Developmentally Disabled: Vague Guidelines Lead to Destructive Decisions and Improper Care,” was the product of research conducted for a seminar response paper in an ethics course she took at Massasoit. Considered one of the “best pieces of research” by the Kingston-Mann Awards Committee, Jessica’s work garnered her recognition at the awards ceremony and a $150 prize.

Massasoit students are the only community college students that participate in this competition with students from seven other colleges and universities in the New England region. All award recipients were honored at the Campus Center Ballroom on the UMass Boston campus on Friday, November 8, 2013. The Kingston-Mann Student Achievement Awards are intended to acknowledge the work of students who make a valuable contribution to diversity and inclusion scholarship by expanding our understanding of ideas and experiences that have not always been acknowledged or recognized by traditional disciplines. Interdisciplinary approaches and analysis that considers the intersection of race, ethnicity, gender, social class, age, disability, and sexual orientation are particularly encouraged.
