The Department of Modern Languages recognized outstanding students from the majors and minors in Spanish during Honors Convocations 2011-2012. The Modern Languages Linguistic Excellence Award
was presented to Christin Egli
; The Modern Language Literary Criticism Award
was presented to Laura Mixen
; the Margaret Burhardt Johnson Modern Language Excellence Award for Outstanding Senior
was presented to Chelsie Batko
and Ashley M. Major
. Congratulations to our Modern Languages Outstanding 2011-2012 students.
I am honored to have received the Margaret Burkhardt Johnson Modern Language Excellence Award this past academic year for my performance in furthering my understanding of the Spanish language and culture. At this university the foreign language professors have not only taught me the art of speaking Spanish but also the history of different Spanish speaking countries and their customs. Also, the foreign language department has provided me with the opportunity to study abroad and practice my skills in Spain. I am honored to have received this award but I am even more grateful for the knowledge that I have gained from the university and its professors.
Receiving the Modern Languages Linguistic Excellence Award surprised me, but I felt extremely privileged as my name was called at Honors Convocation. This notable award humbled me because I am aware that I am still striving to reach fluency in Spanish. My love for the language gives this award personal significance because it recognizes that my persistence in expanding my Spanish has been productive. With the approbation of the Modern Languages department, I am re-energized to increase my knowledge of the Spanish Language within and outside of the classroom, and for that I am exceedingly grateful
