Graduate students compete in 3-Minute Research competition

BOONE—Graduate student Alex Kirk can tell you about his research on adolescent suicide in three minutes flat. He did just that at the Fall 3-Minute Research competition on Dec. 3 at Appalachian State University sponsored by the Cratis D. Williams Graduate School. And he got the judges’ attention.

Kirk, a second-year clinical psychology graduate student, won with a unanimous vote from the judges. His three-minute presentation focused on strategies for reducing the incidence of teen suicide in rural school districts. Kirk is a graduate student researcher in the Graduate Research Associates Mentoring (GRAM) program. His mentor is Kurt Michael.
