Rebekah Yeagley Wins Undergraduate Research Competition

Economics major and Undergraduate Research Fellow at the Center for Growth and Opportunity, Rebekah Yeagley, recently attended the 2019 conference for the Association of Private Enterprise Education (APEE) at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

Yeagley and three other Huntsman School students, Hayden Hubbard, Jacob Caldwell, and Cayden Womack, along with nearly 50 other undergraduate students competed in APEE’s annual undergraduate research competition. Her research project, The Economics of the Mom Blog was awarded first place honors for outstanding research and presentation.

Yeagley, who also is an Amy Rees Anderson Academic Entrepreneur Fellow at the Center for Growth and Opportunity, said she was surprised and humbled by the award.

“I was just excited to have the opportunity to present my research at the conference,” said Yeagley. “I was very impressed with the quality of the other projects, so to have my research recognized was a true honor.”
