Tell us your story in six words: That’s what the UAB campus community was challenged to do for UAB Graduate School’s fifth annual Say It In 6 competition. Participants submitted an image and six words depicting any story they wanted to tell — about their life, their experiences, things they love or have learned. And the submissions were quite inspirational!

The Graduate School recognized five doctoral students and five master’s students as recipients of the 2021 UAB Samuel B. Barker Award for Excellence in Graduate Studies.
