Following this fantastic spread of smoked chicken, ribs, and side dishes, a large  number of awards were given to graduate students and researchers. A total of ten $1,000 scholarships were handed out today!! WOW!

Following the awards presentation, the incoming president Katherine Parys gave outgoing President Jeff Harris a special plaque for his service.

Overall, the conference was well attended and during planning meetings we discussed ways to further increase attendance and participation of students from our university and others.

Award winners will be listed soon!
