JESSICA MCDERMOTT
Outstanding Undergraduate Student
Jesssica McDermott is a universally favorite student in the Economics Department. She has served as a tutor for economics classes and students have remarked on how helpful she is and how well she explains the subject to them. She has also trained another tutor for the department. Jessica plans to work for some time before pursuing her plans for graduate school. One faculty member says this about her “ I still remember a young freshman Jessica in my ECON class. At the time, she was an aspiring K-12 math teacher now an aspiring economics professor. She would have been a great math teacher, but I also know she'll be a terrific econ professor some day”.
