Congratulations Sara Caudle '12

Yesterday Sara Caudle (BUAD and ECON major) earned Honors in the Economics Major.  Sara continued work on a project that has taken her two years.  The project analyzes determinants of student productivity at Roanoke College and this semester she investigated the impact of health education and awareness.  Julie Maina, Sara, and Alice Kassens will continue this project over the summer and hope to develop a proposal for the College based on the findings.  The goal: a healthier student environment!

Sara's committee members included Drs. Julie Maina, Garry Fleming and Alice Kassens.

An earlier component of this project was accepted at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research indicating the high level of Sara's work.  Additionally, Sara earned Honors in Business Administration last year as a junior.

Great job Sara and Roanoke College will miss you dearly next year.

Congratulations to Marko Krkeljas `12

This is the time of year in which fingers are crossed and we wait to hear if our strong students will be rewarded for their hard work by way of a job offer or acceptance to graduate school.

I received a call from senior Marko Krkeljas last night.  He informed me that he had been accepted to the University of Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce for the MS program in Commerce.  Marko is our first student to be accepted to this program and we are very proud of him.  His hard work and perseverance over the last four years has paid off. Congrats to you Marko!

Congratulations Chris Kwaramba `12

Yesterday afternoon Chris Kwaramba successfully defended his Honors in the Major project investigating the impact of PPACA (the health care bill) on the supply of physicians.

Not only was his paper strong, but his presentation was clear, professional and complemented his paper perfectly. Dr. Alice Kassens was his Honors Advisor and the other committee members were Dr. Garry Fleming and Dr. Julie Lyon.

We are very proud of Chris and wish him well in graduate school next year at Virginia Tech.

Chris will graduate with honors May 2012 with a degree in economics.
