Economics student takes home national research award

Eight students recently presented their research at the Academy of Economics and Finance (AEF) Conference in Houston, Texas. Senior economics major Hannah Pasko won the Outstanding Undergraduate Student Paper Competition in Economics. She competed against undergraduate students from across the country bringing home the top prize. Pasko’s research is titled "Does Social Media Usage Affect Suicide Rates in the United States?"

Other students who participated are: Sungmee Kim, Kendall Southerland, Victoria Shoemaker, Ragnheidur Bjarnadottir, Isabelle Evans, Jessica Kleinman and Caitlin McKeon.

Dr. Brooke Conaway and Dr. Brent Evans, both assistant professors of economics and Georgia College graduates, took the students to the conference. Conaway has organized the trip for students for the past four years and oversaw the entire undergraduate competition at the conference. She also moderated a session. Evans served as a judge for the undergraduate competition. 

Last year, two Georgia College students tied for the top Undergraduate Research Award at the conference.
