Ten outstanding F&N seniors were honored for their hard work and accomplishments in May 2009 through their Honor’s Project. The Honor’s Project is a program open to students with a GPA >3.2. Students discover F&N research labs and work with a faculty mentor to conduct research or develop a program. Students must complete and present a research/scholarly study and have completed 6 credit hours of independent study to graduate with honors.
The first group of student projects was highlighted in June, and the final projects will be highlighted in the August Food for Thought.
Rebecca Howden – Rebecca completed her Honor’s Project with Mrs. Barb Mayfield. Her project objective was to develop and evaluate a family meal assessment tool that measures television viewing during meals and fruit and vegetable consumption in families served by WIC, EFNEP and FNP, the programs targeted by Indiana’s State Nutrition Action Plan (SNAP).
Jessica Harris – Jessica’s Honor’s Project was conducted with her faculty mentor Dr. Dorothy Teegarden. Her project evaluated the possibility that optimal vitamin D status may protect against mammary epithelial cell transformation with reduced development of tumors.
Derek Laan - Derek completed his Honor’s Project under faculty mentor Dr. Wayne Campbell. The title of his project is: “Effects of Aerobic and Resistance Exercise on Hunger and Energy Intake in Young Physically Active Adults”.
