Washburn University student Jordan Loyd of Newton won a second-place award for research presented recently at the Great Plains Student Psychology Conference at Northwest Missouri University, Maryville.

Loyd’s presentation was “Assessing the Efficacy of Eyewitness Interview Procedures,” a nonempirical poster in the social psychology category. He is a senior and is majoring in psychology and in criminal justice, with a concentration in law enforcement.

The conference is oriented to student research but is organized similar to regional and national psychology conventions. Students submit their research for review, in order to qualify to present their findings during the convention.
