Local Student Awarded Endowment for Graduate Studies

Hailee Moehnke, from Katy and a student at the University of Minnesota, was recently awarded the Edith Mueller Endowed Fund for Graduate Education in the Tucker Center. The income from the fund will be used to support graduate education, including but not limited to graduate assistantships, research support, travel to conferences, and equipment.
Moehnke is pursuing her Masters of Science in Kinesiology, with an emphasis in Sport and Exercise Psychology. Her research area of focus is in Positive Youth Development under her advisor, Dr. Maureen Weiss, as Hailee is interested in learning how participation in sport and physical activity affects youth psychological and social maturity. Originally from Katy, Texas, Moehnke attended the University of Minnesota and received a B.S. in Kinesiology in 2016. She is a graduate Teaching Assistant in the School of Kinesiology. She also coaches competitive youth volleyball in various locations around the Twin Cities. Moehnke plans to graduate with her Master’s in May 2018 and pursue a career in the non-profit organization industry, focusing on female youth sport participation.
