AFS graduate student receives OIA's International Research Award
A doctoral student with Texas Tech University's Department of Animal and Food Sciences has been selected to receive this year's 'International Research Award,' which is part of the Office of International Affairs' Global Vision Awards program. Keelyn Hanlon is slated to receive her Graduate Research Paper Competition honor at the group's Global Vision Awards Ceremony on Friday (April 8) in the International Cultural Center's Hall of Nations.
Hanlon's paper is titled, "Presence of Salmonella, Escherichia coli O157 and Campylobacter in small-ruminant (goat and sheep) fecal and hide samples collected in the United States, Bahamas and Mexico." The work was a collaborative effort among Texas Tech, Cal State Fresno and Angelo State, and the authors included K.E. Hanlon, M.F. Miller, L.M. Guillen, A. Echeverry, E. Dormedy, B. Cemo, L. Branham, S. Sanders, and M.M. Brashears.
Texas Tech Interim President John Opperman and Provost Lawrence Schovanec are scheduled to present the awards. Friday's program is part of Tech's International Week, a week full of events devoted to celebrating the many different cultures in the world. Students, faculty and staff have the opportunity to participate in events hosted by the university's Office of International Affairs along with several other departments and organizations on campus and within the community.
"This city and campus-wide event brings our community together to participate in a variety of fun, informative and culturally-rich activities," said Jane Bell, senior director of International Outreach and Operations.
The week-long festivities begins at the First Friday Art Trail and ends with the annual Global Vision Awards ceremony. The awards are given to Tech faculty and administrators for their inspiring works that encourage students to study and experience the world abroad. Last year's recipients included David Weindorf, CASNR's Associate Dean for Research.
