Emory & Henry senior Austin Crabtree pursuing doctorate in Occupational Therapy

by Billy Chandler
Our Emory & Henry seniors are preparing to graduate and change the world.

After Austin Crabtree graduates in May 2020 with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Biology, he will be attending the School of Health Sciences to join the Occupational Therapy program. 

“Emory & Henry helped me develop professionalism and presentation skills,” says Crabtree.

While on campus, Crabtree played on the football team, worked in the weightroom, and was a member of Psi Chi, Tri Beta, and Blue Key.

“I am truly thankful for all the professors, faculty members, and coaches that helped me at Emory & Henry,” says Crabtree. “Dr. Qualls guided me into my future career; Dr. Gaia helped me present myself in the world of Psychology with confidence; Dr. Baranowsky taught some of my favorite classes; and Alyson Crisp helped me so much with the financial side of college.”



I am truly thankful for all the professors, faculty members, and coaches that helped me at Emory & Henry.
- Austin Crabtree
