The eighth annual Celebration of Scholarship at Shawnee State University is a highlight of the academic year.
"The Celebration of Scholarship is a special opportunity for us to showcase academic, creative and research projects," President Rita Rice Morris said. "Students and their faculty mentors have spent countless hours examining ideas, creating works of art, testing hypotheses or presenting other methods to stimulate thinking and discussion to present during the two-day event."
More than 215 students presented the two-day conference to share their scholarly works with the university community.
Numerous awards are presented and the SSU Board of Trustees has established a Trustees Award presented for the first time this year by Board Chairman Dan Mooney. The winner of the award was Stephanie Days, whose oral presentation "Evolution and Normativity" briefly explains the Theory of Evolution and explores how it accounts for our definitions of normal and abnormal.
