HONORS CANDIDATES PRESENT PROJECTS AND PROMISE
If the 2009 Moravian Honors candidates are an indication, we have much to look forward to when the next generation of scholars and leaders enters the workforce. A cure for Parkinson's Disease, better understanding of drug addiction, more ethical and effective business methods—these and many other advancements are well within reach, judging by the candidates' impressive research.
Several candidates presented posters at the H. Paty Eiffe Gallery on February 26. Projects ranged from the use of dietary selenium to protect dopamine levels, with potential impact on Parkinson's Disease (Tyler McCambridge; advisor Cecilia Fox, associate professor of biology) to the role archetypes play in marketing (Amanda King; advisor Gary Kaskowitz, associate professor of economics and business).
Honors is a year-long research experience for seniors that concludes with the submission of a thesis, which the candidate defends in an oral examination. Seventeen students are candidates in the Fall 2008 - Spring 2009 Honors Program. The Honors Committee is chaired by Dennis Glew, professor of classics and history. Next year, 2010, marks the program's fiftieth anniversary. Click here for a list of the 2008-09 Honors Program candidates and their projects.
