Alumni Advisory Board Spotlight
Sam Krug received both his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Psychology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He is currently chairman and CEO of MetriTech, Inc., an educational testing company that works primarily with large-scale, state testing programs. He has published many articles, books, and tests. His articles and books all relate to issues in applied personality and educational measurement. Sam and his wife Mimi have lived in Champaign for more than 40 years.
Sam helped to kick off our new fundraising drive with his donation to create the Raymond B. Cattell Scholarship in Psychology:
"I've been on the Psychology Alumni board since it began. In that capacity I've worked each year with undergrads in the internship class that we helped shape. The quality of these students and, very often, their persistence in spite of obstacles, some financial, has uniformly impressed me. Through this scholarship we hope to make a dent in at least some of those obstacles."
Sam has also been working with Advisory Board member Denise Dallmier Burger to arrange and conduct mock interviews for students in the Capstone Internship Seminar. These mock interviews provide students not only with a realistic introduction to interviews in the business world, but gives them feedback and suggestions so that the students can be successful as they embark on their career paths. Sam has been very generous with his support to allow these mock interviews to be held during lunches at the Champaign Country Club.
Dr. Elizabeth Pieroth (BS'88) was one of five alumni selected to receive the 2016 LAS Alumni Achievement Award.
