In Memorium

Julie Staton

Julie Staton headshot
Julie was a second generation OSU student (Go Pokes!) completing her PhD in Developmental and Family Science. She married  her high school sweetheart and they have two amazing children. She worked with children and families for over 20 years and loved working with Early Childhood teachers as well. Julie enjoyed getting to know families in our area and being able to connect with them each year through her work in the CAD Lab.
The Human Development and Family Science department has established an award in Julie's memory, the Julie Branch Staton Outstanding Graduate Student Award. It will be awarded each year to a student who embodies the character, service, and academic excellence that Julie displayed each day during her career at OSU.
