Millikin University biology students took top honors at the 2015 Tri-Beta National Biological Honor Society North Central District 1 Convention, held March 28 at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Ill. The convention gave students and faculty members opportunities to share current research and discuss scientific topics.

The convention featured 38 presentations (nine oral presentations and 29 posters) from students representing 11 institutions in the Midwest.

Millikin student Spencer Hudson, a senior biology major from Wilmington, Del., won the Richard G. Brooks Award for Best Oral Presentation. Senior biology majors Ashley Fulk, from Altamont, Ill., and Elizabeth Wrobel, from Tinley Park, Ill., each received John C. Johnson Awards for Best Student Poster.

Jade Becker, a senior biology major from Decatur, Ill., won a 2nd Place Poster Award, and Kendra Peterson, a senior biology major from Batavia, Ill., received an Honorable Mention Poster Award.

"The overall environment at the convention was very welcoming," said Ashley Fulk. "It was nice to be able to speak with judges and people interested in my research one-on-one."

In addition to individual accomplishments, Millikin's Tri-Beta Chapter, Iota Epsilon, won the Travel Gavel Award for bringing the most participants the greatest distance to the convention. Dr. Travis Wilcoxen, Millikin assistant professor of biology, was also named North Central District 1 Outstanding Advisor for the 2014-2015 academic year.

"It's apparent that when we are at these type of conferences, our students are prepared to present their facts and they think like scientists," said Dr. Wilcoxen. "When people look at the work from our students and compliment it, it shows the value of a Millikin education. Everyone gets an opportunity to perform real research, and I think the students gain an appreciation for doing real science before they graduate."

Spencer Hudson's presentation covered how different amounts of blue coloration in Indigo Bunting feathers relate to the health of the birds. Ashley Fulk's research covered how tadpoles respond to environmental stress and protect their skin with antioxidants, and Elizabeth Wrobel's research covered incidence of diseases in songbirds and birds of prey, as well as the health impacts of the diseases on the birds.

"I truly valued presenting my research at the Tri-Beta Convention," said Wrobel. "Through these conventions, I have the opportunity to share my research with so many people. Also, I am able to learn about other projects being completed by students from other schools, which is always interesting."

Jade Becker's research covered the impacts of elevated testosterone on growth and jumping performance in frogs, and Kendra Peterson's research covered molecular and gene responses of soy bean plants to caterpillar's consuming parts of their leaves.

Other Millikin students who presented at the convention included: Jessica Kerr, a senior biology major from Saint Johns, Fla., and Olivia Waszczuk, a senior biology major from Roselle, Ill. Kerr's presentation covered strategies for developing green techniques for plant growth on the roof of buildings. Waszczuk's poster covered strategies for using nanoparticles in breast cancer research.

Spencer Hudson added, "My experience as a member of Tri-Beta has been highlighted by the way science and people come together. I've come to realize that many of our research projects build over long periods of time in our careers, with crucial input from colleagues at meetings and key observations from other colleagues along the way. The science grows while careers grow and Tri-Beta provides that critical meeting place where one might seek out input from colleagues."

Tri-Beta is a society for students, particularly undergraduates, dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. Since its founding in 1922, more than 200,000 persons have been accepted into lifetime membership, and more than 670 chapters have been established throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.

Millikin University student-attorneys and delegates were recognized for their efforts at the 37th annual Model Illinois Government (MIG) simulation held Feb. 26 – March 1 at the State Capital Complex in Springfield, Ill.

Each spring semester, students from around the state of Illinois participate in the Model Illinois Government simulation. Nearly 300 students from over 20 colleges and universities participated in this year's simulation. 

The MIG Moot Court competition included teams of two attorneys arguing cases before a panel of student-justices and legal professionals. Teams were scored on the basis of presentation and knowledge of the case facts. Millikin University brought five teams to this year's competition with teams advancing to the quarter-final round, semi-final round, and a newly configured four-team final round. 



In addition to the students who participated as attorneys, three Millikin students participated as student-justices: Kara Anderson, a senior philosophy major from Danville, Ill., Kiana Holmes, a junior sociology major from Elgin, Ill., and Rob Spurling, a senior philosophy major from Taylorville, Ill. The student-justices demonstrated mastery of the case files by firing a continuous volley of questions at the attorneys.

"Our students worked extremely hard in advance of and during the competition to produce and then deliver sophisticated legal arguments," said Dr. Robert Money, Millikin professor of philosophy. "The results speak for themselves. It is an honor to work with such bright and motivated students." 

Millikin student-attorney Courtney Burress, a junior philosophy major from Marseilles, Ill., was elected to serve as Chief Justice of the Model Illinois Government Moot Court competition for 2015-2016. Burress will be on the Model Illinois Government Executive Board for the upcoming year.



"This was my first year participating in the competition and the experience was absolutely incredible," said Burress. "Listening to other schools compete and talking to actual lawyers, professors of law, and students from other schools who have the same aspirations as me thoroughly showcased to me that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life."

Millikin students who participated in the competition included: Taylor Lindemann, a first-year theatre major from Oak Lawn, Ill., John Tasch, a sophomore philosophy major from Roselle, Ill., Joshua Rose, a senior philosophy major from Saint Jacob, Ill., Taylor Godwin, a junior political science major from Hillsboro, Ill., Nick Roberson, a senior political science major from East Troy, Wis., Alex Brase, a junior mathematics major from Decatur, Ill., Hannah Serbe, a sophomore philosophy major from Decatur, Ill., Victoria Jackson, a senior psychology major from Chicago, and McKensie Meadows, a junior philosophy major from Decatur, Ill.

Burress added, "I learned a lot about myself as a person and a scholar during Moot Court. I learned a lot about the skills I possess and the skills I need to work on that will help me in my educational pursuits at Millikin and in law school."


MIG LEGISLATURE


In addition to the Moot Court competition, the MIG simulation featured a Legislature Simulation where students are assigned political parties and districts and placed in committees of their particular interests. The legislators simulated the legislative processes in the actual committee rooms and chambers of the Capitol building.

Millikin University brought 10 delegates to this year's MIG Legislature Simulation. Aaron Thomas, a junior political science major from Orland Park, Ill., was re-elected to the executive board, this time as the Attorney General of Model Illinois Government. As Attorney General, Thomas will be in charge of original legislation for the simulation, as well as running the MIG Journal.

"Working at the Capital has always been a great learning experience," said Thomas. "I think Model Illinois Government is a perfect example of what students need in terms of getting involved with politics, and understanding what it means to get bills passed that affect our everyday lives." 



Students Courtney Woelfel, a sophomore political science major from Jerseyville, Ill., and Abby Beaty, a junior political science major from Nokomis, Ill., submitted original legislation to the simulation and their original legislation was debated in committee.

"I was incredibly impressed with the poise and confidence of our students, both in committee action and in floor debate," said Amber Lusvardi, Millikin lecturer of political science. "Their ability to speak passionately and in-depth on a range of government issues was inspiring to me as their faculty advisor."



Millikin students who participated in the Legislature Simulation included: Paige Ehrat, a junior communication major from Shobonier, Ill., Jessica Bird, a senior political science major from Chicago, Karen Padilla, a first-year political science major from Chicago, Colten Watrous, a first-year political science major from Decatur, Ill., Jenny Zima, a junior political science major from Greenfield, Wis., Taylor Morthland, a senior political science major from Decatur, Ill., and Kate Wrigley, a junior political science major from Decatur, Ill.
