Seth Kannarr and Melissa Church noted for their work
Despite the worsening pandemic, the West Lakes Division of the American Association of Geographers (AAG) Annual Meeting was still held in mid-November via Zoom from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, drawing in educators and students from the surrounding region.
Two of Mizzou’s geography graduate students presented at the meeting: Seth Kannarr in the Master’s/Doctoral Poster Competition with his piece titled “States Rated: An Index for Natural Hazard Vulnerability;” and Melissa Church in the Masters Paper Competition with her piece: “A case study of art and historic tourism in Bisbee, Arizona.” Kannarr took first place in his category and Church took third place in her grouping.
“This is an extraordinary showing,” says Department Chair Soren Larsen. “And it goes to show you the quality of research our graduate students are doing.”
