LONG BEACH, Miss. -- The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast's political science program has a lot to be proud of thanks to its students' performances at the National Social Science Association's annual conference in Las Vegas last week. Graduate students Jim Maness and Jack Covarrubias won first place in the graduate student paper contest for their essay, "Should the United States Use the Military along the U.S.-Mexican Border?" These two students competed with 50 other graduate students, including 20 doctoral candidates. In addition, Robert Jordan came in second in the undergraduate essay contest for his paper "Back to the Future: U.S./Philippines Relations Post-9/11."
