English Majors Honored

Posted by bgsuenglish on April 17, 2008

Three majors in the Department were honored on Tuesday evening at the 2007-08 College of Arts and Sciences Scholarships and Awards banquet.

Christie Collins, who is a junior in Literature, a member of the Honors Program, and a double minor in Spanish and Ethnic Studies, was awarded the Paul D. Emery Book Award and an English Faculty Scholarship. Christie invited a favorite faculty member, Dr. Allan Emery, to the banquet. Jeff Battiste, a graduating senior in Literature, Honors Program member, and a double major in English and Mathematics, received an English Major Book Award and the Lowell P. Leland Book Award. And last but not least, Cara Hanson, senior in Literature, Honors Program member, and double major in English and Education with a specialization in Integrated Language Arts, was the recipient of the Frank Baldanza Scolarship and the Gloria Swihart English Award. She invited favorite faculty member Dr. Stephannie Gearhart to the banquet. The Department was especially gratified that three members of the Baldanza family were on hand to see Cara receive her award.

Congratulations to Christie, Jeff, and Cara from everyone here in East Hall!
