Student Organizations co-secretary Jeffrey Austin sends along this information about USF SLIS student Trey Shelton. Congratulations, Trey!
SLIS Student Organizations member Thomas “Trey” Shelton III won the Research Poster Competition at the University of Tennessee’s 31st Annual Research Symposium hosted February 27, 2009 by UT’s College of Communication and Information in Knoxville, TN. The symposium theme was “Power and Politics: Communication and Information.” Trey Shelton bested a number of outstanding faculty and doctoral student researchers’ posters and presentations. Trey’s was one of only four prizes awarded: best faculty/student collaboration, best paper by a master’s degree student, and best paper by a doctoral student were the others.
Trey Shelton’s award was personally presented by the widely-recognized and leading scholar, Dr. Carol Tenopir, Professor at the University of Tennessee’s School of Information Sciences and Director of the Center for Information and Communication Studies in Knoxville. The UT judges said Trey’s research poster and presentation was “visually appealing, used current images and was an excellent presentation that stood out among all the others.”
