Scholars Explore ‘Responsibility of Choice’ at Friday’s Scholar Fest

These Assumption McAuley Scholars worked with faculty advisors and community mentors to complete research on a self-directed topic of interest. Each student was required to choose a topic that went beyond her standard course content and publish a high school thesis in addition to her presentation at the symposium. Since 2012, forty-nine students have completed the Scholar’s Thesis Project.
Selected by the Scholars Thesis students, the 2017 symposium’s theme is “The Responsibility of Choice.” This year’s students topics are: “Literature in Modern Adolescent Classrooms: A Choice to be Made,” Caitlin Hogue; “Factory Farming: Getting to the Meat of the Issue,” Erin Spencer; “The Mark Left Behind: An Analysis of the Physical Impacts of Traumatic Stress,” Maria Nash; “Changing the Narrative: The Case for Democratic Schooling,” Sarah Daus; “Childhood Reading's Effect on Emotional Intelligence,” Natalie Claypool; “Moral as Monkeys: How Our Sense of Conscience Came to Be,” Melanie Duckworth; “Generation Y: Why Is This Generation So Criticized?” Correna Tate; and “American Voting: Did You Vote?” Bella Beilman.
