The Symposium Planning Committee is pleased to welcome you to the 2019 Annual Student Creative Arts & Research Symposium. Over the past years we have honored students, both artists and scholars, who have since gone on to fulfill the promise they first demonstrated at these Symposiums. These students have become researchers, teachers, artists, health care providers, and working professionals contributing to society and serving as positive role models as graduates of TWU. We are celebrating our 22nd year of meeting the following goals: Providing opportunities for all students to share their scholarly pursuits and build leadership and other professional skills, and celebrating student‐mentor achievements in a way that promotes a culture of scholarship and community at TWU. We continue to offer various venues for presentations including poster and platform sessions and virtual presentations. Thank you for joining us in this joyous celebration of a culture of scholarship at this, our 22nd Annual Symposium! 2019 Symposium Planning Committee  Chair: Don Edwards, Chair and Professor, Mathematics and Computer Science  Heidi Collins, Associate Director, Teaching and Learning with Technology  Diana Elrod, Director, Center for Student Research  Helen Everts, Assistant Professor, Nutrition and Food Sciences  Mark Hamner, Vice Provost for Institutional Research and Improvement; Associate Professor, Mathematics and Computer Science  DiAnna Hynds, Professor, Biology  Tracy Lindsay, Director of Operations, Research and Sponsored Programs  Meredith Maddox, Assistant Director, Residence Education  Sarah McMahan, Associate Professor, Teacher Education  Aimee Myers, Assistant Professor, Teacher Education  Elizabeth Restrepo, Associate Clinical Professor, Nursing  Shannon Scott, Chair and Professor, Psychology and Philosophy
