CBCS Students Win Undergraduate Research Awards

Nina Dearwater, a Long Term Care Administration major in the School of Aging Studies and the President the USF Chapter of the Sigma Phi Omega Gerontology Honor's Society and Kacey Renfroe from the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders were selected as one of the winners of the 2015 Undergraduate Research and Arts Colloquium. The two students along with Assistant Librarian Andrew Smith presented an oral presentation entitled "Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys Genealogical Research". The project was inspired and foreshadowed the work of Dr. Erin Kimmerle and her research team in finding the remains of young boys who were buried at the Dozier School for Boys. This project focused strictly on identifying the nearest living relatives of the deceased boys based on private documentation as well as investigation of public records for the purpose of matching DNA once suspected relatives are identified.
