College of Education Dean receives Lifetime Contributions Award

Arthur M. (Andy) Horne, dean of the University of Georgia College of Education and Distinguished Research Professor, recently was honored with a 2012 Lifetime Contributions Award from the Council of Counseling Psychology Training Programs for his national leadership in the field of counseling psychology.

Horne, who will retire in December after serving as dean for the past five years, is widely known for his scholarship on dysfunctional families and ways to prevent and deal with bullying and aggressive behavior by males in the family, school and community context.

Recently, Horne has received numerous recognitions for his work of nearly three decades. He received the American Psychological Association’s 2011 Award for Lifetime Contributions to Prevention Psychology as well as the association’s 2011 Group Psychologist of the Year. In addition, he received the APA Counseling Psychology Social Justice Award in 2010.

Also in 2011, Horne was voted president-elect of the Society of Counseling Psychology, one of the largest divisions of the APA. His tenure as president begins in the fall.

In addition to his recognitions, Horne has received more than $7 million in research funding through grants. Furthermore, a recent report on the most cited and downloaded articles in the peer-reviewed, leading journal of group psychology and therapy, Group Dynamics, indicated that Horne was co-author of two of the top 10 and three of the top 50 articles during the past decade.

I want to thank Dr. Horne for his impactful contributions to the field of counseling psychology, the College of Education and the University of Georgia. We wish Horne only the best in retirement and on his continued pursuits as president of the Society of Counseling Psychology!

Faculty Spotlight: Dr. James Marshall Shepherd

Another star is born - and this time, it is a UGA professor stepping into the spotlight.

Dr. James Marshall Shepherd, a professor in the Department of Geography, will host a new Weather Channel show titled, “WxGeeks” (meaning Weather Geeks). 

Shepherd received his bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees from Florida State University, and joined the UGA faculty in 2006. He teaches courses including ‘Introduction to Weather and Climate’ to ‘Applied Climatology in the Urban Environment.’

Though he may be a new celebrity to the general public, Shepherd is well-known in the climate and weather community. He is a former NASA scientist, the 2013 President of the American Meteorological Society, and heads the nationally-recognized Atmospheric Sciences Program at UGA.

During each episode, Shepherd and other special guests will share expert advice, news and weather-related conversation to educate the viewers in an entertaining format.

WxGeeks producer, Mike Chesterfield, said, “We hope the show can be as geeky and technical as an offline conversation between geeky weather people would be.”
