Hobbs & Rhoads Chosen for Maryland Presentation


Dr. Melissa Hobbs and Lana Rhoads of Williams Baptist College have been selected to make a presentation at a U.S. Department of Education conference. The two will present research findings at the annual Math and Science Partnership Conference in Baltimore.

Hobbs and Rhoads will make a poster presentation on their study of integrating math and science in the high school classroom. The three-year study was conducted through a partnership between WBC and 14 regional school districts, as well as the Northeast Arkansas Educational Cooperative and Arkansas State University.

They were notified last week by the education department’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education that they had been chosen to make the presentation. The conference will be held February 14-16.

Hobbs is an assistant professor of biology at Williams, while Rhoads is assistant professor of mathematics.
