DWC Hosted ‘CRDM Summer Celebration’
Event honored program graduates, scholarship recipients and award winners
On Thursday, June 14, the Department of Writing and Communication in NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences honored M.A. in Composition, Rhetoric, and Digital Media program graduates, scholarship recipients and award winners from the 2017-2018 academic year during its “CRDM Summer Celebration” that took place in the NSU Write from the Start Writing and Communication Center (WCC). The event, sponsored by the CAHSS SGA, was held in the WCC’s Teaching and Learning Studio and featured guest speakers from CAHSS SGA, NSU Career Development and the Department of Writing and Communication Alumni Relations.
“We are proud of these students’ accomplishments and look forward to supporting their continued success,” said Shanti Bruce, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Writing and Communication and interim chair of the Department of Multidisciplinary Studies.
CRDM students Edward Medvecky and Carol Reynolds-Srot, who graduated during the Winter 2018 semester, were honored during the event. Reynolds-Srot, who serves as the associate editor for NSU’s Office of Publications and Creative Services and as an adjunct professor for the Department of Writing and Communication, shared with attendees how the CRDM has helped her to grow professionally in both of her positions.
“The CRDM program taught me all about composition— the history of it, what works in teaching composition on the college level, and even how to teach writing online. The program also bolstered my digital media skills.”
CRDM students Jacquie Lytle and Emalee Shrewsbury were recognized for receiving the 2018 Southeastern Writing Center Association (SWCA) Graduate Tutor Award and for their work with NSU’s Writing and Communication Center.
“SWCA is a regional conference and to be recognized on such a large scale of individuals really puts my work into perspective for me,” Shrewsbury said. “I love what I am doing in the WCC and for the writing center community. Helping people is always rewarding.”
CRDM students Linnette Dobbs-Fuller and Jacquie Lytle were also recognized for receiving the CAHSS Friends Memorial Scholarship.
