Undergraduate students James Holland and Edward Holley won awards at the NCCU Research Symposium held on the NCCU campus on April 19 - 20, 2013. James won 1st place in his division for his analysis on existing air quality monitoring sites in the state to determine where to place future sites. The locations of these monitoring sites are not equally distributed throughout the state. He used distance, as well as climatic factors to determine where they could be placed. Wilkes County, Hyde County and Bladen County were the best candidates.

Congratulations and thank you to everyone for participating.
