MOUNT VERNON—Dr. Harry L. Vogel, assistant professor of sociology, represented Brewton-Parker College’s Division of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the sixth annual Hawaii International Conference on the Social Sciences held in Honolulu.

Dr. Vogel’s paper, co-authored with W. Richard Goe, Ph.D., was presented at the sustainable development session on June 1. The paper deals with the challenges rural areas face in terms of increasing their population and how amenities (the positive attributes of a rural locale) may help to sustain positive population growth in rural America. The conference, sponsored by the University of Louisville, was attended by scholars from around the world representing all of the various social sciences.

On speaking about the conference, Dr. Vogel stated that, “It was a great opportunity for me to present my work as well as meet social scientists from other schools and see what kinds of topics they are researching.”

Dr. H. Lee Cheek, division chair, is pleased with Dr. Vogel’s participation and performance at the college and in his field since he joined the division’s faculty in 2006.

"In the course of only a year on our faculty, Dr. Vogel has distinguished himself as a teacher, a scholar, and a mentor of great promise,” said Dr. Cheek. “He is the webmaster of our division’s website, and he is the lead faculty member charged with developing a criminal justice major at the college. His ability to integrate faith and learning, while maintaining the highest of academic standards, suggest his future in the academy is bright!"
