14th Annual Run for Research Winners

It was raining for the 14th Annual Run for Research on Nov. 7, but we had a few dedicated participants. The winner of the 1-mile run went to Katrina Morris. In the women’s division of the 5K, first place went to Kira Morris, second place was a tie between Katelyn Chadwick and Dr. Karli Morris and third place went to Dr. Emma Atwood.

In the men’s division of the 5K, first place went to Joshua Evans and second place went to Dr. Jody Landers. The winners for the departmental and student group contests for the most participants were the Department of Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics and the McNair Scholars.

A special thanks to Dr. Brett Noerager, Dr. Ruth Truss, the grounds staff in the Physical Plant, Marcelo Galafassi, Kaley Martin, Breanna Malone and Sgt. Joey Glass for all their support in making this year’s Run for Research go smoothly on a rainy day. A very big thank you to everyone who registered and participated. We hope to see you next year for the 15th Annual Run for Research.

Student Dietetic Association Survey Opportunity

On behalf of the Student Dietetic Association (SDA), we request your participation in a survey related to food insecurity among students at the University of Montevallo. The survey is part of the organization’s research project this year, and the results will inform future projects for the SDA. Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and you may opt-out of any question in the survey. All of your responses will be kept confidential. They will only be used for statistical purposes and will be reported only in aggregated form. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.

To participate, please visit this link. If you complete the questionnaire, you may enter a drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card.
