NCPTT has the good fortune to be able to work with professors and students from Northwestern State University of Louisiana on research projects. In the last year, Aura Herandez Canedo was among students working on the evaluation of paint primers on weathered wood. We are thrilled that Aura was awarded the best poster award at the Annual Conference for Industry and Education Collaboration (CIEC) held in Orlando Florida from January 29 – 31, 2020! She received the award based on the originality of the research and the quality of her presentation. Congratulations Aura!
