Rylee Thomas ’24 (CLAS) Named a Holster Scholar

Rylee Thomas ’24 (CLAS), a rising sophomore studying English and Communication with a business minor, was recently named a Holster Scholar for the 2020-2021 school year. The Holster Scholar Program is an opportunity available to first-year Honors students that allows recipients to pursue independent research, design, or creative projects in the summer before sophomore year.

Rylee’s project, “The Film Adaptation as an Essay on the Victorian Novel,” will be comparing Victorian novels to the film adaptations that they inspired, concentrating specifically on how the filmmakers handle the threads of feminism present in the original works.

Congratulations, Rylee!
