Johannes, whose primary work is in youth development with the School of Family Studies and Human Services, College of Human Ecology, will travel to Washington, D.C., to work with the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs and to meet about national technical assistance for needs assessment associated with the development and implementation of the state’s adolescent health plan. Her work is in partnership with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Bureau of Family Health.

She was honored today at the College of  Human Ecology’s annual fall forum for faculty and graduate students.

Johannes has a bachelor's degree in psychology, a master's degree in adult and community counseling, and a doctorate in life span human development from the School of Family Studies and Human Services at Kansas State University.

In 2010, she won the College of Human Ecology's Faculty Extension Excellence Award for her community-based health promotion work featuring effective youth/adult partnerships. She has received grants totaling more than $2.5 million.

Stowe served as dean of human ecology at K-State from 1983 to 1998. The fund, established in her honor, supports the professional development of faculty who translate research-based knowledge of human ecology into practice in higher education, business, industry or public policy.
