Lamar University plans to host the Great Plains Honors Council conference.
Lamar University recently announced that the Reaud Honors College will showcase its now home in the Wayne A. Reaud Building by hosting the Great Plains Honors Council (GPHC) conference from March 31 to April 2, 2017.
 
“It’s a great chance for Lamar to show itself off to the community,” Reaud Honors College Dean Kevin Dodson said. “We have this huge development of a named honors college and this wonderful new facility donated by Wayne Reaud that lets us run all the functions. We’ve arrived on the scene as a major institution in honors education in this region.”
 
The conference allows students from Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas who are members of the National Collegiate Honors Council, as well as faculty members, to meet and share academic work they’ve completed throughout the year.
 
“Every year, students are able to present what they’ve been working on,” Dodson said. “It’s a very student-friendly conference. It’s also great because administrators can communicate about issues and share their ideas. This will also be great for the local communities. We get to show off this southeast Texas, teach them about our culture, and bring in a lot interest for the area.”
