Orono — Kayla Jones of Freedom, Maine, is the Outstanding Graduating Student in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Maine.
The kinesiology and physical education major received the Gene and Judith K. Carter, the Walter F. Tibbetts and the Wesley D. Jordan scholarships.
This semester, Jones interned at Down East Hand and Physical Therapy in Bangor. She also was a teaching assistant for the UMaine adapted physical education class, led by Stephen Butterfield, professor of education and special education. It was as a student and a TA in this inspirational class that Jones says she learned lessons that will last a lifetime. She will attend graduate school in the fall to pursue a doctorate in physical therapy.
