Kendall Parker, a senior political science major on the women's basketball team, has won a national award for her paper, "A Comparison of Female Conscription: Israel versus the United States," as one of two runners-up in Pi Sigma Alpha's 2017 Best Undergraduate Class Paper Competition.
Parker received recognition on Pi Sigma Alpha's website and shared across Pi Sigma Alpha social media channels.
