Congratulations to one of our graduate students from the English and First Year Writing Program, Darla Himeles, who has won a prestigious award from the AAC&U (the Association of American Colleges & Universities). Darla has been selected as one of 7 award winners (out of over 200 applicants) for the 2018 K. Patricia Cross Future Leaders Award. This was a highly competitive selection process. AAC&U received more than 200 nominations from universities across the country, and all of those associated with the Award noted the incredibly impressive credentials of this year’s nominees. As stated by AAC&U’s president: “They represent the finest in the new generation of faculty who will teach and lead higher education in the next decades.” Congratulations Darla!
