History, Philosophy & Religious Studies Department Honors Students

The faculty of Loomis Chaffee’s History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies Department recognized 87 students on Monday, May 18, for demonstrating academic excellence in the classroom this year, and junior Isabel Ruppel was awarded the Williams Prize for 2019–20.  

Established last year, the Williams Prize recognizes former faculty member Mark Williams, an innovative educator and a pathfinder in curriculum development who inspired generations of Loomis Chaffee students over the course of his 44-year tenure. The recipient of the prize, awarded annually to a student of history, exemplifies the characteristics that Mark valued most in his students and that he brought to life in his teaching and scholarship: curiosity, investigation, independence of thought, and original, empathetic writing.
