Carlson, working with advisor Ryan Berg researched and made a presentation on marketing and advertising. Keenan and Larsen both worked with Diane Frank as their advisor. Keenan researched and presented on methods of teaching and Larsen's topic was forensic pathology.
Program moderator Berg explained that any St. Mary's High School junior or senior with a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or above is eligible to participate.
"The program gives students the chance to pursue other opportunities than those provided in the regular curriculum. Participating in the program will allow greater academic experience through an individual research project reported on in paper format in association with a faculty supervisor," he explained.
In addition to following the program guidelines and preparing a substantial paper or project, the presentation was a requirement of the Honors Program. Berg said there were 18 students eligible to participate in the program this school year. Last year five students participated and conducted a substantial research project or paper.
