Honors Program Leads Nation in Student Presentations; Corbin Duo Takes Top Prize

Corbin Prize Winners

The Eastern Kentucky University Honors Program, as it typically does, led the nation in student presentations at the 2013 annual meeting of the National Collegiate Honors Council, Nov. 6-10 in New Orleans.

Also, two students in the program, Jamie King and Jessica Miller, both from Corbin, brought home the “Best Research Poster” prize.

King and Miller, who have known each other since kindergarten and went on to graduate from Corbin High School, were among 38 EKU honors students who traveled to New Orleans to present their undergraduate research. King, a junior occupational science major, and Miller, a junior chemistry pre-pharmacy major, competed in the Diversity category with their project titled “’Creolization’ on the Small Screen: Television, Society and Interracial Relationships, 1948-80.”

Their faculty mentor for the project was EKU Honors Program Interim Director Dr. David Coleman.
