Tanner Cook, a senior environmental science and biology double major from Fairfield, was one of the students who participated. Cook?s presentation was titled ?The Culture of Corn: A Homegrown Mexican Migrant.?

A second research project was also presented, entitled: ?Variant Composting Media for Optimum Gardening Growth and Nutrition.?

The keynote speaker was Darren L. Whitfield, a 2007 BVU graduate, who is the assistant professor of social work and psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work and Department of Psychiatry.
