Professor Wes Chapman, the 2010 Kemp Foundation Award for Teaching honoree, will deliver the keynote talk at this year’s Honor’s Day Convocation, Wednesday, April 14, at 11 a.m. in Westbrook Auditorium, Presser Hall. His topic? “Happiness and the Liberal Arts: Three Movements,” which couldn’t be more appropriate. As Wes’s students well know, he has a habit of seeing things in more than one part, and he enjoys encouraging students to likewise see the complexity of things.
This year a number of English majors and minors will be honored, including recent inductees into Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society (David Buesing, Kerry Erin Devitt, Mark S. Kasperczyk, Laura Spradlin, Amy Christine Bannon, Casey Hamm, Hannah Kiefer, and Nicole Travis) and Gamma Upsilon Media Honorary Society (Jeff Danzinger and Jackie Connelly). At the Phi Kappa Phi induction ceremony, the keynote talk (“Alaska Boots”) was presented by Professor Alison Sainsbury.
