Geography Student Selected to Present Research at Georgia State Capitol


KENNESAW, Ga. (Feb 24, 2021) — Three undergraduate researchers will represent Kennesaw State University at the Posters at the Georgia State Capitol, a showcase of the state’s best undergraduate research, on Feb. 24 from 1-5 p.m.

The event gives selected participants from Georgia’s colleges and universities an opportunity to present their research to state leaders. Sponsored by the Georgia Undergraduate Research Collective, the 2021 poster session will take place as a synchronous online virtual conference.

One of the selected participants is geography major, Artis Trice. A native of Ellenwood, Georgia, Trice's research involves planning community gardens in DeKalb County in hopes that the produce grown will help sustain parts of the county that do not have access to healthy food options.

“I am interested in pursuing this type of research as a career,” Trice said. “This experience of studying and planning urban gardens has been very helpful to my future goals, whether that is in community organizing, urban agriculture, or natural resource management as a whole.”
