Chronicle “abuzz” about EKU Researcher

Dr. Tammy Horn, Senior Researcher at EKU‘s Environmental Research Institute was featured in a front-page story in this week’s Chronicle of Higher Education.  Dr. Horn’s partnerships with coal companies in Kentucky and West Virginia has the potential for reshaping reclaimed coal mine land and boosting economies, including areas in EKU’s service region.  The International Coal Group is one company reforesting mined land with trees and plants that bees prefer, providing an environment ripe for the growth of an Appalachian honey and bee-related services industry.

Congratulations to Dr. Horn on this national recognition for her work and for EKU!
