Lewis and Clark Community College’s Honors College recently held an exposition, during which students showcased their culminating humanities research projects in the form of interactive exhibits and demonstrations.
Guests had the opportunity to meet the students and learn about their experiences one on one. “The event was very successful, bringing together students, faculty, donors and the community,” Honors College Coordinator Jen Cline said. “Students are really proud of their work at the expo. They spend anywhere from a semester to two years working on a project to display. These projects are the result of the struggle of learning. Learning is uncomfortable, and the Honors College students have embraced that struggle.”
Student Eleanor Kohlberg’s project in managerial accounting, instructed by Accounting Professor Margie Sinclair-Parish, stressed that accountancy is accessible to everyone.
“It is hard to express my joy when a student says they want to do a project in accounting for the Honors College,” Sinclair-Parish said. “It is my privilege to work with students in the LCHC program; they have a deep interest and enthusiasm to pursue a better understanding of how accounting can fit with their goals in life.”
The Honors College is sponsored by the Mannie Jackson Endowment and Center for the Humanities with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
