About Macon State
Two Honors Program students received awards at the 29th annual conference of the Georgia Collegiate Honors Council (GCHC), which was held at North Georgia College and State University on Feb. 17 and 18.
Heather Ness, a junior from Warner Robins majoring in psychology, won first place (a $500 cash prize) for her paper "Jungian Psychotherapy: 'Little Red Riding Hood' and the Transition into Womanhood." Summer Leverett, a senior from Warner Robins majoring in history, won second place (a $250 cash prize) for her paper "The Racial Dichotomy of Liberian Colonization."
At the conference, 75 honors students from public and private colleges and universities throughout the state gave presentations of their research, and awards were given for first, second, and third place in the best paper competition. Other Macon State students presenting research at the conference were Eilene Epperson, Patrick Lippert, and Megan Salter.
In addition, Ness was elected student member-at-large of the GCHC Executive Board (one of two student positions on this state-wide body).
