In March 2014 five of TMC’s outstanding psychology majors won second place in the State of Kentucky at the Kentucky Psychological Association’s Psychology Bowl. The team included John Notorgiacomo, Katie Tolbert, Brent Emerson, Jenn Adkins, and Christina Brackett-Newport. In the final round they gave opponent, Bellarmine College, strong competition and made TMC proud. Congratulations to each of these hard-working and dedicated students!
