    Honors Students Recognized at Webb Society Convention 

    At the annual Webb Society state convention, held in conjunction with the 121st annual meeting of the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA), the South Campus did well! Two students were published in this year’s edition of Touchstone, a refereed journal of TSHA:  John Michael Hoke for “’Protesting an Existing Intellectual Vacuum:’ The Early History of Houston’s Alley Theatre” and David Cook for “History of Surf Culture in Texas.” Both students wrote their papers as part of their class work in Honors program classes.   John Michael also presented his paper at the conference—one of only two undergraduates on the entire program.

    Later at the awards presentation, two Honors students won awards for their research papers in Texas History: Alena Johnston won first place (and $400) for “Denton Cooley Trailblazer in Cardiac Surgery” while Gerardo Nunez won third place (and $150) for “The 1966 University of Texas Tower Shooting: How it Changed the View of Mass Shootings.”  Finally the South Campus Webb Society chapter won the Chapter of the Year award.  Dr. Abbie Grubb is the lead sponsor of the Webb Society.
