CYFC Welcomes New Graduate Research Assistant

By Judy Myers, Extension Educator — Children, Youth & Family Consortium

Children, Youth & Family Consortium (CYFC) is pleased to welcome Kyla Flaten as our new graduate research assistant. Kyla is currently a graduate student in the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and the School of Social Work with an anticipated completion date in May 2018.

Kyla is a graduate of Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA. While in college, she spent time in Bryon Bay, Australia, in the School for International Training, where she concentrated on sustainability and environmental action.

Kyla began work January 19 and will be largely involved with CYFC’s partnership work with Bruce Vento Elementary School in St. Paul. In that role she will analyze data to evaluate performance, help maintain community alliances related to the school, and help keep the CYFC staff organized. Having worked with Kyla when she was a student assistant in Youth Development, I know that she will be a strong asset to our work.
