Brandon Vick of the Economics Department presented his work over the past two years with the Appalachian Teaching Project at the Development District Association of Appalachia Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. on March 19, 2017.

He was asked by the Appalachian Regional Commission to participate in their session on leadership development and encouraged regional development planners to utilize university students in their projects and give students an active role in improving their communities. He joined a panel of other ATP faculty from Auburn University, East Tennessee State University, and the University of North Georgia.

Vick is serving as a MARTI research associate through his membership to the interdisciplinary Veterans’ Reintegration Program.
