    Our heartiest congratulations goes out to Abbey Marcotte, a graduate student at Kansas State University, for being selected to receive the 2019 John Cowan Memorial Scholarship! Abbey's master's project focuses on quantifying past and present mechanisms of how bedrock rivers erode laterally into channel banks. We look forward to hearing more about her research, either in an upcoming issue of Metes and Bounds or at KAM 2019 this fall. Congratulations, Abbey!
