Tarleton fares well in TAMUS Pathways Student Research Symposium

STEPHENVILLE (November 7, 2017) — Eight Tarleton State University students took first-place honors in The Texas A&M University System’s (TAMUS) 14th Annual Pathways Student Research Symposium last week on the Stephenville campus.

Hosted annually by a different A&M System university, the symposium is an opportunity for undergraduate, master’s degree and doctoral students to present their research findings—across various academic disciplines—in poster or oral format. Almost 300 students participated in this year’s event.

First-place winners at the 14th annual Texas A&M University System’s Pathways Student Research Symposium were announced Friday, Nov. 3, following the two-day symposium hosted by Tarleton State University. Awards were presented to doctoral, graduate and undergraduate students in 19 academic disciplines.

Tarleton’s first-place undergraduate winners and their research category are:
 Danielle Casilio, Education;
 Trey McClinton, Environmental Science;
 Tyler Nsekpong, Physical Science;
 Maricsa Perez, Business and Computer Information Systems;
 Brittany Stewart, Life Science; and
 Maria Tovar, Mathematics.

Tarleton graduate students placing first are:
 Danielle Belleny, Environmental Science; and
 Akita Joshi, Life Science.

“We’re honored to have hosted this year’s Pathways Symposium,” said Dr. Credence Baker, associate dean of the College of Graduate Studies and planning committee chair. “This was a wonderful opportunity for the next generation of TAMUS researchers. Our planning committee and volunteers worked extremely hard to provide students with opportunities to showcase their research, network with each other and get feedback on their presentations from faculty in The Texas A&M University System.”
