LSC-CyFair names three student library research award winners
The Lone Star College-CyFair (LSC-CyFair) recently announced its 2010-2011 Student Library Research Award winners.
The winners are Cody Beers, Scott Liebling and Misty Nikel, who received $500, $300 and $100, respectively.
The Student Library Research Award annually recognizes the best student research projects that find, evaluate, select and communicate information from library resources effectively. Faculty members nominate the student research projects, and the volunteer organization, Friends of the Library at LSC-CyFair, generously fund the research award.
“Our mission is to promote interest in the library and support the library in its service to LSC-CyFair students and the community,” said Joan Everson, president of Friends of the Library at LSC-CyFair. “When the idea of a research paper award was presented to the board, we were unanimous in our support. This seemed like an excellent way to both promote use of the library and reward students for the efforts.”
Beers took first place with an English project for adjunct professor Patricia Healy titled “Daddy Complex.”
Liebling took second place with his political science project for Professor Heidi Jo Green titled “The Societal Effects of the Decline of Organized Labor in the United States.”
And, Nikel took third place with her English project, also for Healy, titled “Reform for U.S. – China Trade.”
