Oxford alums distinguished in Emory Class of 2012
June 04, 2012
Graduates of Oxford College's Class of 2010 continued on to Emory College, the Nell Hodgson Woodrff School of Nursing or the Goizueta School of Business, and most have just graduated as members of the Emory Class of 2012. When honors were handed out, many Oxford College graduates were part of that roll call.
Evan Dunn received the prestigious Martin Luther Brittain Award, the highest student honor bestowed by Emory University. It is presented each year to a graduate who has demonstrated exemplary service to both the university and the greater community without expectation of recognition. While at Oxford, Dunn also received the Virgil Y.C. Eady Sophomore Service Award, also a top student award.
Other honorees from the Oxford Class of 2010 included:
- Digant Kapoor, who was selected for an international fellowship called the Humanity in Action (HIA). Kapoor is one of only 38 students from the United States chosen for the fellowship, which has a total of only 100 international HIA fellows.
- Leadership at Emory selected Lynn Hargrow for its Trailblazer Award, and the Heart of Emory Award was awarded to Chelsey Carter.
- Elizabeth Cappello was one of only four seniors named to the Emory Hall of Fame.
- Emory students named to Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities included Tara Brooks, Elizabeth Cappello, Paul Choi, Evan Dunn, Ali Jooma and Sara Radmard.
- Emily Brennan won the Vaddadi R. Rao Prize, the highest awarded given annually by the Emory College Department of Religion for overall excellence among religion majors.
- Three of the four religion majors graduating with honors from Emory College were Oxford continuees: Emily Brennan, highest honors for her senior honors thesis; and Jordan Szaroletta and Michael Luzinski, high honors.
