CONCORD UNIVERSITY STUDENT KYLE REINHOLT

SELECTED FOR COMPUTER SCIENCE RESEARCH PROGRAM

 

ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University senior Kyle Reinholt has been selected for the 2016 Summer Multicultural Access to Research Training (SMART) program at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The ten week research program in computer science is one of several fully funded opportunities affiliated with the Leadership Alliance.

“The main reason I applied is so that I could refine my research skills as an undergraduate before applying to a computer science Ph.D. program in the fall,” Kyle said. “Experiences like these give you an incredible advantage when applying to graduate programs.”

Kyle is president of Concord University’s Coding Coalition and has previously attended an REU (research experience for undergraduates) at Virginia Tech called the Multicultural Academics Opportunities Program (MAOP). His research at Virginia Tech also served as his McNair Scholars Program research. A resident of Wayside, W.Va., Kyle is majoring in computer science.

Concord University faculty member Lonnie Bowe attributes Kyle’s success to his initiative and perseverance. Mr. Bowe is faculty sponsor of the Coding Coalition and Kyle’s academic advisor within Concord University’s Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
