A bit of good news as we head into Thanksgiving break. Senior Classics major Melissa Huber just received word that she has been named a finalist for the Lionel Pearson Fellowship. The Pearson Fellowship is the top national honor bestowed on an undergraduate by the American Philological Association. Melissa is one of four national finalists for the award. She will be flown out to San Antonio for final interviews during the APA Conference in January. The Pearson Fellowship funds a year of graduate study in Classics at an institution in the U.K. Melissa is the first College of Charleston student to make it to the final round of competition.
Please join me in congratulating Melissa on being named a finalist for this most prestigious fellowship. It is a testament to the terrific work that she has done with us over the years.
