APS advisors James Wells and Lee Ann Morrison want to acknowledge that much of the credit for this year’s success is due to the leadership of our current student President, Austin Brewer, and his executive officers, Sarah Leitner, Allison Maynard, Anna Reeves, and Peyton Ratliff.

APS are looking forward to receiving more awards at next year's competition at ACJS in Baltimore.
