Congratulations to Wren Halpern, the 2021 Winner for the 2021 Kathleen Gibson McPeek Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to an author with an outstanding essay on a literary text or texts! Written in Fall 2020, Wren wrote their essay in ENGL 3613: Introduction to LGBT Literature. They were nominated for the award by Julia Brush.
Congratulations also to our honorable mentions: Sophie Archambault ’23 (CLAS), Judah Berl ’22 (CLAS) and Catherine Casey ’21 (CLAS).
The English Scholarship Committee received an unusually high number of McPeek essays this year, which is a testament to our passionate faculty who assigned obviously engaging prompts. It was a pleasure to see the breadth of skill that our students hold in writing and analysis, especially across the many courses represented for this past scholarship year.
Congratulations again to all!
