Competing with upper classmen and students from across UNT campus, freshman honors student, Gretchen Clark, won second place at the 12th Annual University Scholars Day on April 16, 2015. Gretchen wrote the paper in her Sociology Honors Course taught by Dr. Helen Potts. The purpose of Scholars Day is to celebrate the work of undergraduate researchers at UNT. Undergraduate students are invited to submit abstracts for a poster or paper based on original research or creative work conducted under the guidance of a faculty mentor at UNT during the past year. Gretchen's paper examined influence of the bourgeoisie on the interactions of self-expression of the proletariat by analyzing bumper stickers. She conducted her own survey among 202 undergraduate students at UNT during the fall of 2014. Gretchen was awarded a financial prize to be used for travel to a professional meeting. Congratulations, Gretchen!
