Students and professors make money at Sigma Zeta Banquet

Three weeks ago several students and professors in the Natural Sciences and Mathematics department received awards and scholarships at the Sigma Zeta Banquet. Six different scholarships and a research stipend were awarded to worthy students; in addition, awards were presented to an outstanding senior in each major in the department. Dr. Searls was presented with the Butler Distinguished Faculty Award for his long service as a math professor. Finally, the Sigma Zeta cabinet presented club sponsor Mrs. Witherington with  a new, live, eel for her aquarium, to replace the one she lost over Christmas, and the Natural Sciences office assistant Allison Richardson was given a gift card to her favorite shop.

Senior photography exhibit leaves viewers speechless

By Becca Price

Meredith Knowlton presently has her senior exhibit in photography up in the Z.T. Johnson Gallery, next to the grille. The title of her show is “When Words Fail,” and examines the ways that people cope with loss. Knowlton said that she has experienced grief in her own life, and wanted to hear stories from others. “Times of grief leave lasting impressions on who we are and how we respond to future circumstances,” she said. “It creates this environment that forces one to make responsive choices.” The reception was held on April 20, and the show will be up until May 1. Knowlton also recently won the Art and Faith award in chapel on Monday, April 23.
