Studentís Research Wins Prize at Geography Meeting
During the 2005 annual meeting of the East Lakes Division of the Association of American Geographers in October, attended by seven Wittenberg students, Rachel Allan ’06 of Toledo, Ohio, made a lasting impression.
Of the three student papers entered by Wittenberg students into a competition with 13 other papers from both public and private colleges and universities, Allan’s paper, “The Scottish/Welsh Connection: The Influence of Charles Rennie Mackintosh on Frank Lloyd Wright,” took second place.
“All of the students did well, and we were proud of all of them,” said Artimus Keiffer, assistant professor of geography, who accompanied the group along with Olga Medvedkov, professor of geography.
“Rachel really enjoyed doing the research on her paper, and it showed,” he added. The national conference is scheduled for March 7-11 in Chicago.
