English students present at regional conference
2017 Nov 14
Seven Chadron State College English students recently presented original writings at a Regional Literature and Creative Writing Conference hosted by Fort Hays State University Oct. 20-21.
To present at the conference, the students - Alyssa Ermish, Stephanie Gardener, Marqui Keim, Carlie Enns, Zane Hesting, Kaitlin Macke, and Jessica Hanks - were chosen by Sigma Tau Delta High Plains Regent Dr. Lexey Bartlett, an Associate Professor at Fort Hays State. Chadron State had the most students presenting at the conference in the High Plains Region, which is comprised of colleges and universities in Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.
"To present at the regional conference is a distinction for the students," said Dr. Steve Coughlin, English and Humanities Assistant Professor, who along with Dr. Kimberly Cox accompanied the students to Fort Hays State. "The students represented themselves well, and they were wonderful advocates for the great student scholarship at Chadron State College."
