Tech Students Take Top Honor at Symposium


Arkansas Tech students recently took home the top honor at a symposium in New Orleans.

James Heford, Adam Broyles and Justin Magee (photographed) were recognized with the award for the best student presentation at the Tulane-Arkansas Tech Neuroscience Symposium in the Crescent City last week.

They were presented the award from Dr. Kaleuff from the Tulane School of Medicine.

The symposium focused on stress and behavior, and those in attendance could hear presentations on the topic in addition to presenting their research.

In all, seven students from the Department of Behavioral Sciences at Arkansas Tech were selected to travel to New Orleans to present their research projects as a part of the symposium.

The following students participated in the symposium:

  • James Herford
  • Adam Broyles
  • Justin Magee
  • Katina Rowe
  • Kendra Gray
  • Ryan Anderson
  • Susan Easley

Arkansas Tech faculty members Dr. Julie Mikles-Schluterman and Dr. Jason Warnick also attended the symposium.

The joint symposium comes after students from Tulane University traveled to Arkansas Tech to participate in a symposium on the Tech campus last fall.
