Ouachita Baptist University students and faculty earned numerous top honors at the recent Alpha Chi national honor society convention in Alexandria, Va. An OBU student research team won the Collaborative Research Award, the largest prize of the convention, for the second consecutive year. Junior Jace Bradshaw earned one of two national Edwin W. Gaston, Jr. Scholarships for undergraduate research as well as the Region II Scholarship and was elected as a Region II student delegate to the national council. Dr. Lori Hensley earned one of two national Outstanding Sponsor Awards and was elected president of Region II.
Jace Bradshaw, Stoni Butler and Rebekah Davis were members of the research team that won the Collaborative Research Award, earning a $5,000 prize for the chapter. The competition required students from at least three different majors to design and implement an interdisciplinary research project that fit a theme determined by the Alpha Chi national office; this year’s theme was “Transcending Boundaries.” This project was supported by the Arkansas INBRE program, with a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, P20 GM103429 from the National Institutes of Health.
