The “senior” research award, the Doris Gildea Moran Scholarship, was awarded to third year PhD student Charles Monge.

The Albert Warren Scholarship for teaching excellence was awarded to fourth year PhD student Jorge Cruz Ibarra.

The Outstanding Master’s Student Award was given to graduating MA student Damien Short, who will be entering Ohio State’s PhD program this fall.

 Dr. Hillary Shulman was voted as this year’s Faculty Mentor of the Year, as voted on by the graduate students.

 The event also recognized Dr. David DeAndrea’s seventh and final year of service as Graduate Studies Chair.
