Four Salkehatchie students presented papers at the first annual Carolina Emerging Scholars Conference in Sumter, SC on May 12.  The theme of the interdisciplinary conference was “Temptation and Redemption.”

Abigail Byrd presented “Destruction Deception: The Delphi Dilemma,” based on a paper she had written in a science fiction literature class.

Katina O’Neal Brown’s paper “An Analysis of Redemption in Susan Glaspell’s Trifles” was inspired by her connection to the play early in her undergraduate career.

Christine Rice’s analysis “Andrew Jackson: Sinner or Savior,” was originally researched as part of a history class.

Kelly Wall reviewed the tribulations faced in running for office in “Newt Gingrich: A Story of Temptation and Redemption.”

Drs. Sarah Miller and Maureen Anderson also attended the conference to support their students.
