University of Wisconsin-Superior Seniors Greg Pitts and Reggie Semanko celebrated the successful conclusion of individual Senior level research projects at the McNair Scholars Celebration dinner on September 19, 2017, in Swenson Hall and the Yellowjacket Union. 

“The McNair Scholars program is a premier undergraduate research and scholarship program that empowers undergraduate students to stretch beyond their typical capacities to generate original research," said Dr. Maria Stalzer Wyant Cuzzo, who was the McNair mentor for both projects. "Being a McNair Scholars is a consummate honor since I get to see these terrifically talented students attain new research heights as part of their engaged undergraduate education at UW-Superior.”

Pitts designed, researched and wrote an extensive analysis paper related to attitudes that people in the Northland and Chicago have on guns. He did intensive interviews to obtain his original data. 

Semanko designed, researched and wrote an extensive analysis on mediator styles. She also did intensive interviews with regional mediators to complete her project. 

Both Pitts and Semanko presented their McNair projects at a public poster presentation and then celebrated with their families and friends that evening. Pitts and Semanko plan to pursue advanced education in law school and graduate school in the future. Both are on pace to graduate in May 2018.
