Congratulations to Pegasus Professor Jeffrey Stout, who has been elected by his peers as Fellow in the National Academy of Kinesiology.
Stout joins the 2021 inductees alongside the College of Sciences’ Pegasus Professor Peter Hancock. Both are the first NAK fellows at UCF.
Elected Fellows have exemplified scholarship and leadership in the discipline throughout their career and have advanced the mission and goals of the Academy. This honor is considered the pinnacle career achievement in the discipline of kinesiology.
“I am extremely honored to receive this recognition for my work in advancing the field of kinesiology and training the next generation of educators in the field,” Stout said. “I see it as the result that comes when you live your passion, which is what I’ve been doing in my field for over 25 years.”
Stout will be officially recognized during the NAK’s annual meeting in late September.
“Jeff is very deserving of this recognition,” says Christopher Ingersoll, founding dean of the College of Health Professions and Sciences. “He has not only been a major contributing scholar to kinesiology, but also helped build a nationally-recognized program here at UCF. His contributions are going to have an impact for decades to come.”
