Standout Classics Students Win 2022 Awards
The Davidson College Classics Department is pleased to announce the following awards.
W. Kendrick Pritchett Award in Classics
Two seniors received the W. Kendrick Pritchett Award in Classics: Kelly Garrett and Emmie Lo. The award is named for a Davidson graduate from the class of 1929 who became a distinguished professor of classics at the University of California, Berkeley. The award goes to a senior who shows the characteristics for which Pritchett was known: distinguished academic performance, personal integrity, and love of ancient literature, history and archaeology.
Dobson-Neely scholar, proven teacher of Latin, whose rapacious passion for Classics leverages inspiration and grit to produce rigorous, sophisticated research – all with an intellect uncompromising yet profoundly generous.
Emmie Lo reads ancient languages with mellifluous ease, and peerless are her determination, open heart, sense of self, and insightful wit. But her inspired creativity and joy of intellect? Divine!
Stephen W. Keller Memorial Scholarship
Sarah Booker ‘23, from Hillsborough, North Carolina, won the Stephen W. Keller Memorial Scholarship for a month of independent travel in Greece.
Outstanding Student Award from the Society for Classical Studies
Grace Semrau '25, from Mt. Pleasant, Wisconsin, won the Outstanding Student Award from the Society for Classical Studies. The award goes to the first- or second-year student who does best in the major gateway CLA 111 class.
