ETFL Members Honored

Holden Hansen

At the annual Faculty Appreciation Banquet, several ETFL members were in the spotlight.

Holden Hansen, Professor in the Theatre Department, received the Board of Governor's Award for Excellence in Teaching, the top honor in the system (more detail here). He regaled the appreciative audience with an acceptance speech that covered his career, his mentors, his students, his teaching philosophy, and involved first the chancellor and then the whole audience in interactive exercises.

ETFL Celebrates its Students

Students with Cake

On April 25th, ETFL held its second annual awards ceremony, a chance to celebrate the many achievements of our majors. As well as honoring outstanding seniors and endowed scholarship winners in the English., Theatre, and Foreign Languages Program, the ceremony saw the induction of new members of Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honor Society, as well as a recognition of its graduating seniors.

After the ceremony, honorees and faculty gathered to enjoy conversation and snacks, the highlight of which was a celebratory cake for graduating seniors.

Each year Sigma Tau Delta, the National English Honor Society, hosts a national convention for members to meet, interact and learn from each other. This year, four members from UNC-Pembroke joined their ranks.

During the 3 day conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Sigma Tau Delta Members attended panels, read their own works, and interacted with other English students from around the country.

Reaching Out Beyond the Classroom

Baggott Anderson and Students

Congratulations to ETFL Lecturer Hannah Baggott Anderson, who was recognized for her hard work in advising two student groups this year: the American Association of University Women and Spectrum. While the groups' enthusiasm and projects are the best evidence of her value as an advisor, the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership formally recognized her as "Advisor of the Year."
