“The event is designed to showcase undergraduate research to state legislators in order to keep them informed about the good things going on at our state universities,” said Dr. Linda Barnes, professor of languages and literature and coordinator of the APSU Honors Program. “I select four to six Honors Program students each year who are excelling in the area of undergraduate research.”

Students participating were Deanna Carter, Kristie Canaday, Kristina Stonerock and Toshia Wrenn.
