Conway Saylor, PhD
The Citadel (SC)
After receiving her BA in Psychology from Colorado College in 1977, Dr. Conway Saylor completed her doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Virginia Tech and her internship in Clinical Child/Pediatric Psychology at Chicago's Children's Memorial Hospital in 1982. After a decade of producing three children, IP and OP clinical programs, and pediatric research at Medical University of SC, she moved to The Citadel, where she wrote the charter proposal for their PSI CHI chapter in 1993. Since then she has seen The Citadel's chapter grow into a diverse group of graduate and undergraduate members who are active locally, regionally, and nationally in service and scholarly endeavors. Most recently she helped the chapter resurrect a state-wide "Academic Day" co-sponsored by the SC Psychological Association which brings 200+ faculty and undergraduate students together for fall programming. Mentoring students is her main passion and she is incredibly honored to be recognized by this award.
