Geology senior and McNair Scholar, McKenzee Peterson hopes people take at least one thing away from her speech at this year’s Keith and Thyra Thomson Honors Convocation. “Fall in love with rocks,” she says. “Many people think geology is only the study of rocks, but it’s actually a study of the earth, and a lot of it is very applicable to what we use every single day. Without geology, you wouldn’t have a lot of things you have now.” Mckenzee was a student speaker at the Fall Honours Convocation.
