Students and faculty from the Honors Program traveled to Kent State University last weekend to compete at the 37th Annual Mideast Honors Association Conference. Ten students represented Columbus State, and were able to attend sessions throughout the weekend focused on student research being conducted at both two-year and four-year institutions. Eight students prepared poster presentations on topics they either researched in association with their honors courses, or with the help of their faculty mentor. Catherine Mendel was awarded one of three first place awards by the judges. In addition, Paul Kendrick was selected to serve as a student representative on next year’s MEHA Executive Committee for the 2016 annual conference in Richmond, Indiana.
