Honors Program Students and Faculty Gather

Three Vol State Honors Program students recently traveled to Motlow State Community College for the Tennessee Collegiate Honors Council Conference, an annual gathering of students from honors programs and colleges at community colleges and universities around the state. Vol State students have attended the conference before, but this was the first one at which students presented papers. 

John Butkevicius presented “Tainted Success: Links between the Height and Fall of the Mayan Classical Era,” which was his semester-long project in Honors world history. Josh Ashby presented “The Ritual: A Sociological Exercise,” which he developed in his Honors sociology class. Hannah Giles shared her paper from the Honors history/literature class, “American Christianity and the Female Sex.” 

The students were accompanied by their own personal cheering section, Asst. Prof. of History and Honors Director Merritt McKinney and Associate Professor of English Betty Mandeville.
