Nine Weinberg College Seniors Honored for Outstanding Academic Achievement

Nine Weinberg College seniors were presented with the prestigious Oliver Marcy, James Alton James, and Daniel Bonbright Awards during a ceremony led by Dean Sarah Mangelsdorf on November 11, 2011. The awards, each given to three students, recognize outstanding academic achievement across the sciences and humanities.

The Oliver Marcy Scholarship, for students studying the natural sciences and mathematics, was awarded to Kerianne Fullin, Hunter Gits, and Lauren Linzmeier.

The James Alton James Scholarship, awarded for distinguished achievement in the social sciences, was presented to Blake Erickson, Arthur Jago, and Mengyi Jiang.

Laura Jok, Joshua Levin, and Katherine McGarrahan were recipients of the Daniel Bonbright Scholarship, awarded for excellence in the humanities.

The Marcy, James, and Bonbright Scholarships are named for three influential faculty members in Northwestern’s history. Oliver Marcy was a professor of natural science in the late 1800s and also acting president. James Alton James served as history department chair as well as the first dean of The Graduate School. For more than five decades, Daniel Bonbright was a professor of Latin and served as University president at the beginning of the 20th Century.
