This weekend, Dr. Boyle and Dr. Brant accompanied Kara Black and Mitchell Crittenden to the 6th Texas Tech Annual Biological Sciences Symposium (TTABSS). Both Kara and Mitchell presented their senior research projects as oral presentations, competing against 6 other undergraduates from Texas Tech and Wayland Baptist universities.

Kara’s presentation was entitled, “Antibacterial activity and Chemistry of Five Texas Plant Species.”  Mitchell’s presentation was entitled, “Clarification of the Distribution of the Eastern Mole (Scalopus aquaticus, Talpidae) on the Southern Rolling Plains Region of Texas.”

Both students represented McMurry well and Kara Black was awarded 1st place in the Undergraduate category.  Please congratulate both students when you see them around!
