Kate Hevner Mueller served Indiana University from 1937 to 1969 as Dean of Women, Senior Counselor for Women, and Professor of Education. Dr. Mueller was a national pioneer for women professionals and developed the Master’s Program in College Student Personnel (Higher Education and Student Affairs) at Indiana University in the early 1950s. The Kate Hevner Mueller Senior Awards were established in 2013 to honor IU seniors who have proven leadership on campus both inside and outside of the classroom and who have improved the IU community by their presence.
This year, Indiana University has selected 28 outstanding recipients for the Kate Hevner Mueller Outstanding Senior Award. In this article, we congratulate Carli King for her ability to represent Dr. Mueller’s essential goals of the university: to promote intellect, develop personality, and inspire citizenship and leadership to all students.
Carli will be graduating from the College of Arts and Sciences with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish. She was an undergraduate research assistant in the Li Group Chemistry Research Lab, a Medicines Innovation Hub Intern with Eli Lilly and Company, and one of twelve students selected nation-wide to complete an intensive fellowship in nuclear chemistry at the Brookhaven National Lab. On campus, Carli held leadership roles as the president of Honors Bloomington Outreach, an executive role in Alpha Chi Sigma, Epsilon Chapter and an executive member of ICAN at IU. She will be attending the IU School of Medicine in the fall.
When asked to share a few special acknowledgements, Carli said:
I would like to thank my family and my IU community for always pushing me to pursue what I am most passionate about. I would also like to specifically thank Lynn Cochran for being one of my biggest supporters during my time here at IU.”
