An instructor and academic advisor in Penn State’s Department of Nutritional Sciences, Shawnee Coppersmith Kelly ’04, M’05 received the Young Dietitian of the Year Award for 2015-16 through the Pennsylvania Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Shawnee is president-elect of the 3,700-member academy and president of the Central Pennsylvania academy. Getting involved in professional associations is something she also encourages her students to do. “Having a community of registered dietitian nutritionists around them will make them stronger professionals and practitioners,” she said.
