    This was my 2nd time in a row attending the Annual Regional Research Symposium, sponsored by the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Unfortunately this year I did not present but I did attend the opening session, lunch session, poster and oral presentations, and closing ceremony. I was particularly impressed by some of undergraduate oral presentations. The highlight of the conference was the speaker for the lunch session, Ronald E. Blakely, the Associate Director for Barack Obama’s White House Initiative Office on Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Blakely gave a laid back and often humorous talk on his journey to current position and shared the lessons he learned on the way. His main point to me was to make sure to leverage any opportunities around you in order to reach your goals. People often overlook resources that are right in front of them. He encouraged the conference attendees to be diligent and humble in seeking out these resources. All in all, this was a great conference. UMES is a beautiful campus and the trip was well worth the early drive!

    Talking with a few of my peers about their presentations was interesting. Aside from the typical pre-presentation jitters, it generally a good experience. Although a few of them felt as if the presentations would have been better received if the judges were more familiar with their field of study, One thing everyone agreed on was enjoying the lunch speaker and the great food!
