We are pleased to announce that Rachel Mazzara has won the Epps Prize in Greek Studies and Nicky Curtis the Herington Scholarship this spring 2013 semester.
“I feel very honored to have been chosen for the Epps Prize, and I’m grateful to all of the professors and classmates who have taught and encouraged me while I’ve been at UNC,” Mazzara said in an emailed reaction to her award.
The faculty award Epps Prize to one junior or senior undergraduate or graduate student of Greek who shows “the greatest interest and promise in coming to understand the Greek language, literature, history, and outlook.” It is named for Preston Epps, who taught in the department for many years.
Faculty grant the Hernington Scholarship of $450 to one first-year, sophomore, or junior Classics major or minor to further his or her studies at UNC or abroad. Preference is given to promising Greek students.
