DURANT, Okla. – Five Fish and Wildlife students from Southeastern Oklahoma State University attended the joint meeting of the Arkansas and Oklahoma Chapters of the American Fisheries Society recently in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
All five students gave presentations (co-authored by Dr. Tim Patton, professor in the Department of Biological Sciences), including three oral presentations and two poster presentations.
Joseph McAllister won the best student paper award and one of two $1,000 scholarships awarded by the Oklahoma Chapter of AFS. Notable was that McAllister won the best paper award and the scholarship in competition primarily with graduate students. He is a senior and a graduate of Choctaw High School.
