Three members of Freed-Hardeman University’s chapter of Alpha Chi traveled to Chicago, Ill., presented their research at the honor society’s national convention March 19 - 21 in Chicago. John McLaughlin, FHU professor and sponsor of Alpha Chi, reported that the university was well represented in the categories of communication, health sciences and psychology.
Jordan Turner, senior psychology major from Tallahassee, Fla., received the Mary Waterstreet Prize in Psychology. Turner’s presentation was titled “Optimal Self-esteem Versus High Global Implicit and Explicit Self-esteem: Determining Contribution to Well-being.” She was one of 29 students who received a $100 cash prize for making the best scholarly, creative or artistic presentation in her field.
In addition, two other students presented papers. Holly McCormac, a senior English major from Huntsville, Ala., presented research titled “A Brief Examination of the Use of Manipulative Rhetoric in Politics.” Bethany Iversen, a senior nursing major from North Charleston, S.C., spoke on “Effects of Ganoderma Iucidum (Chinese Reishi Mushroom) on Breast Cancer Cells.”
More than 260 students from various universities across the country made presentations.
