HP Students Attend Kentucky Honors Roundtable
On October 4, 2013, seventeen Murray State University Honors Program students left for Northern Kentucky University to present their student research at Kentucky Honors Roundtable (KHR), a conference held every Fall and Spring semester for honors program students from public universities across Kentucky. The purpose of the conference is the presentation of undergraduate research in a non-intimidating environment and the exchange of ideas about the various honors programs in the state. The students were accompanied by the Honors Program Director, Dr. Warren Edminster, and the Administrative Secretary, Lori Rogers.
There were a variety of disciplines represented by Murray State Honors students at KHR, including Biochemistry, Biology, Education, Equine Science, GIS, Sports Psychology, and Wildlife Biology. As well as presenting their information, they also had the opportunity to listen to and learn from other presentations. “It was interesting to see what Kentucky students are researching,” Sophomore student Helen Beckert said about her KHR experience, “and it was nice to present my research to other students who would appreciate it.” The host universities for KHR alternate every semester; Murray State recently held the conference last Fall and the upcoming Spring 2014 conference will be at Morehead State University.
