Dr. Cundall has article accepted for publication
Dr. Michael Cundall, The Honors College, recently had an article accepted for publication. The article is titled Rethinking the Divide:  Modules and Central Systems and is forthcoming in the journal "Philosophia."

Dr. Romero has paper accepted for publicationDr. Romero, on left, observes Whale skeleton with graduate student recently.
Dr. Aldemaro Romero, Biological Sciences, has a paper accepted for publication in the Bermuda Journal of Archaeology and Maritime History. His paper deals with the environmental history of whale and ambergris exploitation of the island during the 17th century. Dr. Romero did archival research at the Bermuda Archives and the British Library in London, where he found sources that supported the idea that despite strong British intentions to regulate the exploitation, local Bermudans, sometimes in association with local officials, developed a pirate whaling industry, which set the stage for the depletion of the local populations of humpback whales.

ABI specialist chosen for Kellogg Foundation initiative
Karen Busby has been chosen for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Mid-South Delta Initiative (MSDI) design work group from more than 400 applicants across three states. Busby will serve on the leadership group, a coveted position for which she was asked to apply. The purpose of this program is to allow a group of grassroots people to develop new solutions for low-income or disenfranchised communities, and to explore new leadership practices in the region. Employed by ASU Jonesboro through a grant with the Arkansas Department of Education, she works with the Delta Institute for Mathematics & Science Education. She works with teachers, administrators, and students covering a region that includes eight counties with 29 school districts and 49 secondary schools to provide professional development, technical assistance, mentoring, model lessons, and student workshops. Congratulations to Karen!
