Meleah Smith attended classes at the Panama City campus while she was home for the summer from the Tallahassee campus in 2012. She took several psychology classes with Dr. Kelley Kline. Smith even worked with Kline on a research project Dr. Kline was conducting.
“I really enjoyed my classes at the Panama City campus,” Smith said. “The level of access you have with your professors, the class sizes, and the pace of campus life really suited me.”
Smith took her knowledge from FSU PC back to the Tallahassee Campus the following fall for her senior year.
After graduating from FSU, Smith earned her Masters in Counseling Phycology from the Troy University Panama City Campus. Smith remains in the community helping at-risk youths through a local agency that provides in-home family therapy.
“My first job following graduation, I was working exclusively with children,” said Smith. “But soon I realized so much more could be accomplished if the entire family worked together to help the child.”
Because education is cumulative and each new class builds on the class that came before, it was the foundation provided by FSU that has enabled Smith to reach her goal of helping families in our local community today.
