Student Russ Walls, Torrie Brickley, Matthew Derrick, Nick Perdue, and Merien Townsel, Geography

After a long but fun road trip down to San Diego, Humboldt came home with several top awards from the 71st Annual California Geographical Society meeting in San Diego. The 16 current students, along with alumni, who attended represented HSU Geography with strong enthusiasm and professionalism.

We had three first-place student awardees. Nathaniel Douglass won first place for the McKnight Professional Paper Award. Russ Walls won first place for the Geosystems Professional Paper Award. And Torrie Brickley won first place for the Student Cartography Competition. Douglass also won the David Lantis Scholarship, and several of our students landed Student Travel Awards. Well done!

Our faculty got in on the action, too. Professor Matthew Derrick was awarded the Friend of Geography Award, and he was elected CGS Vice President. Dr. Nick Perdue was elected to the organization’s board, as was Merien Townsel, our recent graduate and current Administrative Support Assistant.
