Two hundred and thirty-five students, supported by 13 faculty mentors, participated in the School of Education and Professional Studies 12th Annual Excellence Expo on May 2. Students from the Business Administration, Communication, Economics, Education and Health and Physical Education Departments presented their research projects in the Betty R. Tipton Room; the Student Center Theatre; the Paul E. Johnson Sr. Community Conference Room; and other venues on campus. Eight Eastern faculty and staff, along with nine representatives of area businesses and social service agencies, served as judges at the Expo.
