2002 Undergraduate Laerm Award Winners
The recipient of the 2002 Joshua Laerm Academic Support Award for Undergraduates is Heather Howdeshell, Department of Anthropology, to conduct research under the direction of Dr. Mark Williams. The funds will support her study of archaeological materials from the Lake Springs Shell Midden in the Clark Hill Reservoir. These materials were excavated in 1951, but were lost for almost 50 years. They were recently found again and Howdeshell is completing their study. The Award will enable her to present the result of her research at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research at Whitewater, Wisconsin in April.
