Dr. Andrew Yox and Ron Bowden

After one hour and twenty minutes, the recent meeting of the State of Texas Touchstone Editorial Board appeared to reach a critical phase.  Dr. Mari Nicholson-Preuss, a University of Houston Honors Director, and expert in medical history, began to list some problems she encountered in reading two recent student submissions from Northeast Texas Community College.  She concluded her remarks, however, saying, her expertise in this area probably made her too critical, and that Dorali Hernandez’s “Progression of Medical Maintenance” still merited inclusion in the 2022 journal.

Maverick J. Jones, an NTCC sophomore who hopes to become a teacher in agriculture, became the premiere winner of the Zachary Richardson Award.  As he developed his history essay over the course of this past spring semester, Jones decided to compose an article-length work of twelve pages on the significance of the tractor in American agriculture.  For this added effort, he was the only non-honors student during the 2021 spring semester to receive the letter ‘H’ for a course, in addition to another exemplary grade.  He also received a $50 award in the mail.
