History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies Scholars Honored

Students and faculty gathered in Katharine Brush Library on Friday, May 12, for the annual History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies Honors Tea to recognize students who have excelled in their studies of these three fields this year.  

In his opening remarks, Department Head Eric LaForest challenged students to put the knowledge and skills they acquired this year to good use. Paraphrasing the civil rights leader and Episcopal priest Paul Washington, Eric urged students to ask themselves, “How can I use my abilities as a scholar, as a writer, as a thinker, as a citizen to promote more equity and justice” in the world?  

Prior to the presentation of certificates, seniors Nia Hardaway, Justin Wu, and John Sihn related memories of their history, philosophy, and religious studies classes.
