Eastern Kentucky University senior Nan Campbell, of Elizabethtown, earned a first-place award at the National Collegiate Honors Council Conference for her poster.

Campbell claimed top honors in the Environmental Science and Green Technology category for “Assessing Pollinator Food Sources and Phenology on Eastern Kentucky University’s Campus.” The conference was held in Phoenix, Ariz., Oct. 19-23.

“You have distinguished yourself, your school and the National Collegiate Honors Conference with the high caliber of your work,” NCHC Poster Competition Chair Gregory Tomso wrote to Campbell and the other winners.

EKU’s unofficial student beekeeper, Campbell has played an important role in the University’s initiative to promote beekeeping as a means to reclaim surface mine sites while also contributing critical data to a NASA project dealing with the relationship between flowering plants, bees and global warming.
