Recognized by four Alpha Lambda Delta initiates as a ‘Favorite Professor’

Alpha Lambda Delta initiates Anna Cooperrider, Anne Jefferson, Rachel Dallman, and Myles Sanford all recognized me as a “Favorite Professor” at 2008’s Kalamazoo College chapter initiation ceremony, held Oct. 30.

Eligibility for membership in Alpha Lambda Delta is determined by the first-year academic record, and is limited to those maintaining a grade point average of at least 3.5 and class standing in the top 20 percent.

Myles was a member of my first-year seminar on graphic narrative, Anna and Rachel were introductory creative writing workshop members, and Anne thrived as the only first-year in my class on Victorian literature.

Thank you Anna, Anne, Rachel and Myles for associating me with your success.
