Two M.A. Students Win Best Paper Award at APCG Conference in Reno

Our department is very proud to announce that two of our M.A. students, Katherine Georges and Katie Wade, each won a Best Paper Award at the October, 2018 ACPG conference in Reno.  In addition, Katherine also won the Margaret Trussel Fieldwork Scholarship.  This is two years in a row that a CSULB graduate student has won both a Trussell Fieldwork Scholarship and the Tom McKnight & Joan Clemons Award for an Outstanding Paper (recall that Genie Bey won these same awards last year).  In total, nine students from the Geography program attended the conference, and excellent poster presentations were also given by students Christina DeCorse and Thyda Uy.
