Headshot of Karagh Brummond

Karagh Brummond received the Unsung Hero Award for her amazing leadership as founder and director of a brain awareness group called the Brainy Bunch. This is a group of 12-15 UW students, staff, graduate students and faculty who provide outreach in Laramie and throughout Wyoming to raise awareness about the brain. 

Dr. Brummond has engaged in this work for the past four years (now entering its 5th) with no compensation, reward or pay simply because she wants the Wyoming citizens and students to better understand the amazing brain. 

The Brainy Bunch reaches high school students by contacting high school psychology teachers and spending about 12 separate class periods over 5 days reaching and educating nearly 300 students a year.  Dr. Brummond has created this sustainable outreach program as well as hosted Brain Awareness week on UW campus where families and individuals spanning 5 years old to adults came may engage in hands-on activities to learn about the brain.
