Honors Day 2014

On April 29th,  2014 the English Department honored the accomplishments of its outstanding undergraduates at its annual Honors Day Ceremony. At the event, presided over by Professor Jennifer Wingard, Director or Upper Division Studies, faculty, family members, donors, and friends joined in to recognize winners of the English Department's many competitive awards for excellence in literary and critical writing and research, poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, as well as achievements as editorial assistants, consultants, and in student leadership. Distinguished Honors Day speaker Professr Laurie Elinghansen, an alumna of our program and now Associate Professor of English at the University of Missouri, spoke to the students and guests about her professional journey and its beginnings in the English classroom at UH. After the awards ceremony, students, family, faculty and friends mingled over our traditional Goode Co. barbecue lunch in the quadrangle.
