Student's study aids area schools


Katie Cutler, a School of Communications senior, completed a Senior Seminar project that could have an impact in area schools.

Cutler surveyed all the students at the Burlington area's Eastern Alamance High School about their smoking habits and the effects of anti-smoking ads they see on TV. She will present her findings to the administrators of the Alamance-Burlington School System. They hope to use the study to find more ways to help deter teen smoking.

"Doing a survey of 900-plus students, collating the information, writing it up and presenting it is a pretty massive task, but Katie did it well," said her mentor Dr. David Copeland. "This is a good story for all of us. I hope other students will follow her good example. Their research can have a local impact."
