Five student delegates presented scholarly papers on subjects that included biology, chemistry, American literature, British history and political science. 

Of the student scholarship nominees, all four won awards: Hannah Templin, '17, took home Region II's Edwin H. Gaston Scholarship; Hope Woods, '17, took home the National Council's H. Y. Benedict Fellowship and Marisa Ayers, '18, took home the National Council's Alfred H. Nolle Scholarship. Keeley Wooten, '17, was named alternate for Region II’s Joseph E. Pryor Fellowship. Together they collected $6,000 in scholarship and fellowship funds.

Lyon’s Alpha Chi chapter won distinction as an Alpha Chi Star Chapter.
