Presentation of Awards

  • Given to the student who has demonstrated an ongoing process of self-reflection, self-awareness, and self-advocacy that has led to significant achievement of first year academic goals.

    student Dominic Limaldi

    Recipient: Dominic Limaldi
    Presenter: Katie Roquemore, Assistant Professor of Education

    Hello, my name is Katie Roquemore, and I have the pleasure of presenting Dominic Limaldi with the First Year Student Award. I had the privilege of working with Dominic in College Learning Strategies and Perspectives in Learning this year. Dominic possesses many qualities of an exceptional student including being dedicated, organized, curious, and self-aware. Like many new students, Dominic was anxious at the start of the fall semester. However, Dominic is an amazing self-advocate, and by communicating his learning and emotional needs with faculty, he gained confidence to meet any challenge. He continues to grow academically and personally. Dominic is also a positive and supportive class and community member, always ready with a pop culture reference and smile. Congratulations, Dominic, on an amazing first year; you have earned it!

     

     
    student Fernando Zavala

    Recipient: Fernando Zavala
    Presenter: Meg Baronian, Associate Professor of Writing

    I encountered Fernando for the first time in the fall of 2021. It was by email before the semester began and he was already demonstrating great skills in self advocacy. Fernando was a student in my WRT1011 class, and I have the good fortune of working with him again this semester in WRT1012. He is someone who demonstrates the “ongoing process of self-reflection, self-awareness and self-advocacy” acknowledged in the First-Year award, and he has achieved a lot in his first two semesters at Landmark. I find Fernando’s commitment and perseverance admirable. He completes every assignment with care, uses office hours for support as much as he can, and takes every opportunity to revise. His academic writing improves with every essay draft he submits. His other instructors concur. Doug Lynch his math instructor this spring says, “Fernando has been 100% engaged in my class all semester. He works through every single problem and makes sure he knows it. He is an incredibly dedicated student”. Lucy Stamp who worked with him in Perspectives in Learning in the fall says Fernando “experienced tremendous growth as a learner and always seemed interested in learning for its own sake”. I’m very happy to name Fernando Zavala one of two recipients of the First Year Student Award.

     
  • Given to the student who demonstrates commitment to and talent with creative writing.

    student Madeleine Symons

    Recipient: Madeleine Symons
    Presenter: Hannah Markos, Assistant Professor of Education

    Hello, my name is Hannah Markos, and it’s my pleasure to present Madeleine Symons with the creative writing award. Sharing work with peers is one of the most nerve-wracking aspects of life as an emerging writer, but Madeleine actively seeks feedback, especially of the sort that will guide the revision process. Delving more deeply into what is not yet working about a story in order to continue to improve requires a good deal of courage and dedication to the craft, and Madeleine exemplifies both of these traits. An aspiring novelist, Madeleine has developed a portfolio of short fiction that spans a range of genres, but regardless of the conventions of the form in which she’s working, her narrative authority and talent for creating authentic vulnerability in her characters makes each piece deeply relatable and emotionally compelling—two elements that will provide a strong foundation for future work, especially in book-length projects that are meaningful and powerful. Congratulations, Madeleine!

     
  • Given in memory of Rob Gunther-Mohr, founding faculty member and beloved teacher and colleague, to the student who best exhibits independent critical judgment, a love of reading and ideas, and an abiding compassion for others.

    student Meredith Robertson

    Recipient: Meredith Robertson
    Presenter: Sara Glennon, Professor of Writing

    The Rob Gunther-Mohr award is presented annually in memory of Rob to the student who best exhibits independent critical judgment, a love of reading and ideas, and an abiding compassion for others.

    This year’s recipient is Meredith Robertson.

    I have had the great pleasure of working with Meredith in two different courses at Landmark. Meredith is the kind of student who makes any class she is in better for everyone. She’s well-prepared, insightful, humble, and curious about other people’s viewpoints. She loves to learn. She loves to read. She loves language.

    In class and in her writing, she does this thing, which some say is the essence of academic discussion: she builds on the ideas of others. She listens to her classmates and responds to them by name, adding to their ideas or thoughtfully countering their ideas with her own.

    She helps us all use our shared classroom discussion to make meaning.

    One of my favorite quotes is from a writer named Nicole Wallack, who directs the undergraduate writing program at Columbia. Wallack says this: What writing teachers want is for students “to show up as thinkers, on the page.” Meredith shows up as a thinker—a curious, intelligent, compassionate thinker—every time she comes to class. She is an ideal recipient of this award. Congratulations, Meredith.

     
  • Given to the student who has made the most strides in demonstrating professionalism in the workplace and developing a career plan.

    Student Chris Ferraina

    Recipient: Chris Ferraina
    Presenter: Jan Coplan, Director of Career Connections

    My name is Jan Coplan. I am the Director of Career Connections and have the privilege today to present the Career Readiness Award. The Career Readiness Award is given to the student who has made the most strides in demonstrating professionalism in the workplace and developing a career plan.

    The recipient of this award began their journey of building their professional skills in 2019 when they completed our Employment Readiness Program. Since then, they have participated in several of our workshops and events including writing an elevator pitch, mock interviewing, networking, and finally interviewing in the fall with our corporate partners from Computer Aid and EY.

    Recently they were awarded $1,500 to help build up their entrepreneurial business of buying and reselling popular videos.

    This student will be receiving their Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science on May 14th and in preparation for “life after Landmark” has submitted their resume to numerous corporations. They were recently interviewed by our newest partnership, Tufts Point 32 Health. In an effort to be thorough in their search for opportunities they have been in the process of creating a customized computer science internship with Monadnock Developmental Services in Keene, NH for this summer.

    Having taken ownership and initiative in their career plan the Career Readiness Award goes to Chris Ferraina. Congratulations Chris for all your diligent and focused efforts.

     
  • Given to the student who best exemplifies communicating with purpose, clarity, coherence, and persuasiveness in writing.

    student Claudia Sherman

    Recipient: Claudia Sherman
    Presenter: Meg Baronian, Associate Professor of Writing

    Claudia Sherman is a student in my WRT1011 class this semester. In the short time I’ve known her, she has impressed me with her seriousness of purpose, focus and self-discipline. Claudia’s writing ability is noteworthy. She reads everything assigned and reflects on it thoughtfully. She thinks critically about her subject then writes with insight and skill, incorporating what she takes from discussion and texts. She not only synthesizes information effectively but makes every other writing decision involved in producing an essay with thought and care. Claudia deserves to be recognized for the effort and skill with which she has approached every writing task she’s been given this semester. She is this year’s recipient of the Writing Excellence Award.

     
  • With nine disciplines, liberal studies explore humanity from many perspectives. Our courses are about the diversity of human experience and how the past informs contemporary life. Excellence in liberal studies means engaging with new and enduring questions in humanities, literature, and social science.

    The Award for Excellence at the Associate Level goes to a student who has excelled in a range of our elective courses. This student shows curiosity about the world and the desire to explore unfamiliar topics.

    Katherine Addison

    Recipient: Katherine Addison
    Presenter: Peg Alden, Professor of Anthropology

    Although this award goes to an associate-level student, my encounters with the recipient of this liberal studies honor have been in upper-level courses…courses that pull for critical thinking on complex, sometimes contentious, issues. The liberal studies faculty had no difficulty coming to consensus that Katherine Addison deserved this award that honors thoughtfulness, curiosity, and academic excellence. Congratulations, Katherine!

     
  • The Award for Excellence at the Baccalaureate Level goes to a student who has pursued a focused area of interest in the liberal studies. This student is a budding scholar who has the potential for leadership in the field.

    Ben Heath

    Recipient: Ben Heath
    Presenters: Lynne Shea, Professor of Literature

    Scholarship means engaging with ideas, valuing both theories and facts, and displaying an openness to seeking out and synthesizing multiple perspectives. This student’s faculty remark on his passion for the subject matter and a willingness to engage with difficult questions. He maintains high standards but also inspires classmates not only through his intelligence but also his compassion for others. I had the good fortune of working with this student in two courses this year and am so pleased to give this award to Ben Heath.

     
  • Named for a beloved founding member of Landmark College’s art department, goes to a student who is deeply committed to developing as an artist, and who is willing to take risks and spend considerable time on their art, regardless of the medium. The student consistently produces work of a high caliber that manifests deep engagement and experimentation, and routinely elevates the level of conversation within classes, helping to cultivate a culture of curiosity, dialogue, and inclusivity.

    Lana Deane

    Recipient: Lana Deane
    Presenter: Jen Morris, Professor of Photography

    Lana, your steady curiosity shines like a star, glittering. You ask us for more information, more challenges, and more feedback. You are the student in the room who possess the continual dedication to refinement of craft while simultaneously cultivating space to experiment. When you fail, you fail heartily– with a sketchbook to document how to reinvent what you learned. The yarns of questions and attempts that you are weaving together may seem thin and incomplete to you now, but may we remind you that are still threading warp and weft; the full pattern will reveal itself over time.

    Your light shines in your role as a member of this community. You are a grounding presence for your fellow classmates. Your critiques are full of grace, genuine interest, and aplomb. You lead the Art Club.

    We, as the Fine and Performing Arts Department, are grateful to have the opportunity to offer you this award.

  • This award goes to a student who has excelled in psychology. Through academic achievement and work outside the classroom, the student has shown mastery of foundational content, a scientific mindset, and the people-focused skills for a multicultural and neurodiverse society.

    student Sarah Kersey

    Recipient: Sarah Kersey
    Presenter: Tim Beck, Assistant Professor of Psychology on behalf of Professors Linda Kerr, Tim Beck, and Solvegi Shmulsky

    Congrats, Kersey, on this receiving our first ever award for excellence in the discipline of psychology. No student I’ve worked with embodies the attributes that define this award more than you, and none is more deserving of being awarded it in its inaugural year. You have been a consistent, critical voice in our young psychology program, leaving an indelible impact on students, staff, and faculty. It has been a pleasure watching your passion for psychology and social justice grow across many courses and conferences we’ve participated in together. You have a rare ability to not only understand complex ideas but communicate them to others in ways that help them understand them as well. Wherever the future takes you, I hope you continue to nurture these qualities as you embark on the next phase of your journey.

     

    student Alexandra Jassin

    Recipient: Alexandra Jassin
    Presenter: Linda Kerr, Associate Professor of Psychology on behalf of Professors Linda Kerr, Tim Beck, and Solvegi Shmulsky

    It is with great pleasure to name you, Alexandra, as one of the recipients of the Excellence in Psychology award this year. Through academic achievement and work outside the classroom, you demonstrate mastery of foundational psychological concepts and an understanding of the scientific mindset. Further, in your interactions with others and your work for the Center for Women and Gender, you display the people-focused skills necessary for a multicultural and neurodiverse society. Not only do you care deeply for the success of others, but you add a dash of color to all you touch. Thank you for your tireless contributions to the Centers for Diversity. Congratulations and best wishes!

  • This award is given each year to a student who has excelled academically in the program and also shows much potential as a future technology professional.

    student Andrew Barrows

    Recipient: Andrew Barrows
    Presenter: Karina Assiter, Assistant Professor of Computer Science

    I am pleased to announce that Andrew Barrows was unanimously selected by the Computer Science Program faculty to receive the Landmark College 2022 Computer Science Award.

    Andrew is the type of student that instructors hope for; he is hard working, intelligent, kind, respectful, mature, humble, motivated, and exceptionally generous with his time. He rarely, if ever, misses (or arrives late to) class. He submits his work on time and always performs at the top level. He never complains either about project requirements or course-based workloads. When his peers have problems with their projects, Andrew jumps in to help.

    As an anecdote, whenever I ask a question of the class, such as “are you ready to start” or “does that make sense” or “do you have any questions”, Andrew always gives his signature thumbs up as an acknowledgement. As faculty, we know that an acknowledgement is not always a given, so it’s appreciated (and a sign of emotional intelligence).

    The only downside to Andrews stellar performance, strong work ethic and upbeat personality is that he is in high demand; many Landmark College entities would like to have him participate in their clubs, their committees, apply for their internships, participate in their research ventures, etc. I’ve tried a few times to recruit him for Computer Science support.

    In terms of what Andrew has selected to participate in, he has contributed greatly to the Landmark college community, often in the position of leader. For example, he is currently a Resident Assistant, the President of Phi Theta Kappa, a Golden Key Officer, and co-president of the Dungeon Delvers club. He has been an intern working on Education Software Development and a student employee with Data Management and Online Hiring.

    We are proud of Andrew for his accomplishments, and for his contributions to the Computer Science program specifically, and Landmark College in general.

    The Geoff Burgess award goes to a Communication and Entrepreneurial Leadership student who has demonstrated academic excellence and community leadership through initiative, diligence, and progress. This student has been inspirational and has provided leadership, helping to transform the lives of others and the community as a whole. It is an honor to present this year’s award to Lauren Orser.

    Lauren is an extraordinary student, one whose diligence and perseverance are matched by a quick, lively intellect and a willingness to go the extra mile, whether in supporting other students or in making her own projects the best that they can be. The new independent student newsmagazine, Voices, would not have come into being without the scores of extra hours Lauren put in to make the graphics and layout work.

    Lauren is one of the most dependable students I have worked with in more than three decades of teaching, and every class is made better by her presence in it. Working with Lauren has been one of the great joys in my professional life, and I could not be happier to present this award to her today. Congratulations, Lauren!

    student Sophia Spraggins

    Recipient: Sophia Spraggins
    Presenter: Tamara Stenn, Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurial Leadership

    Sophia is an enthusiastic class participant and team leader in both my Opportunity Management and Marketing classes. Sophia really integrates her learning experience. Sophia has gone beyond her classroom learning and applied these skills to transform personally and thereby contributing to the college community. For example, Sophia applies team building lessons from Opportunity Management to her marketing projects, and her marketing lessons to her Opportunity Management projects.

    She strives to include her teams in marketing and Opportunity Management projects by seeking small points where they can start and encouraging them to become more involved. She applied her marketing skills to design the logo and messaging for Sharks Go Greens and has risen to the be the Opportunity Management classroom project’s top salesperson.

    Sophia is patient and understanding of others and has a positive can-do attitude for herself, even when faced with a large challenge.

    student Will Donohue

    Recipient: Will Donohue
    Presenter: Todd Miller, Assistant Professor of Physical Education

    Will, this award is for outstanding achievement in the study of Life Science. I belive this is an accurate description of your performance in two Life Science lab courses that you have taken: Science of Wellness and Intro to Anatomy and Physiology. You have shown dogged persistence in working to understand complex systems and big ideas, and how they relate to everyday life. Your scientific writing skills have matured beyond format, content, and rationale to the point where your unique voice is evident in your reports. Even when your grade can go no higher, you review and revise, enhancing your understanding and improving the quality of your work. Congratulations.

     
  • The award for excellence in mathematics goes to the student who is serious about further study in mathematics. The student actively participates in discussions, communicates clearly about mathematical concepts, and demonstrates inquisitiveness, dedication, consistency, and preparedness: the hallmarks of a successful analytic and logical thinker and problem solver.

    student Oscar Gal

    Recipient: Oscar Gal
    Presenter: Gil Rosenberg, Associate Professor of Mathematics and Chair, Department of STEM

    I am very pleased to present Oscar Gal with the math excellence award. Simply put, Oscar deserves this award because he is already a talented mathematician. I saw this in Linear Algebra, where Oscar often went above and beyond, answering every challenge question I offered, searching for and finding additional connections among the topics in the course, and posing astute questions about where he could next take the ideas.

    I saw this even more in the Problem Solving class, where Oscar chose to work on a very complicated problem. By the end of the course, Oscar had filled many pages of his notebook with novel notation and rather amazing partial solutions to this complex problem. He approached the problem exactly as a professional mathematician might have, with the same intensity and systematic, logical strategies, and as a result he generated original mathematical ideas.

    Oscar’s curiosity, initiative, critical thinking, and persistence all exemplify the kind of mathematical interest and ability that we admire in the winners of the math excellence award. Congratulations, Oscar!

     
  • Given to the mathematics student whose extraordinary effort and progress over the year is consistently admired by professors, peers, and advisors. Through hard work, attentiveness, and diligence with assignments, the student is becoming a skilled problem solver; one who has learned to think logically and symbolically, to reason analytically, and to communicate clearly about mathematical concepts.

    student Will Donohue

    Recipient: Will Donohue
    Presenter: Gil Rosenberg, Associate Professor of Mathematics and Chair, Department of STEM

    I am delighted to present the Pat Jaquith award to Will Donohue. Will’s performance in Statistics exemplifies the characteristics that this award seeks to honor: hard work and persistence that pays off with improved mathematical thinking, problem solving, and math communication. I can count on Will to come to class well prepared and ready to learn. He always has assignments complete and is completely engaged in class.

    Most importantly, however, Will takes charge of his own learning. He pays attention to what he does and doesn’t completely understand, and then takes steps to bring his learning to the next level. For example, he asks questions in class and comes to office hours to get clarification where it is needed, and he takes advantage of opportunities to re-learn material that he didn’t completely master the first time around.

    Will’s effort and work ethic are admirable, and it is so gratifying to see them result in Will’s significant growth as a mathematical thinker. Congratulations, Will!

     

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is the International Honor Society for students enrolled in associate degree programs, serving an estimated one million members and consisting of 1,100 chapters across the United States and throughout the world. Its focus is on growth in the four hallmarks: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship. The Beta Alpha Epsilon Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa was chartered at Landmark College in 1994.

How do I become a member of Phi Theta Kappa?

Once a semester (Fall and Spring), students meeting the requirements are invited to join the Beta Alpha Epsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. Membership eligibility is based on the last academic semester or term a student has enrolled in for coursework (Fall, January Term, Spring, and Summer Sessions). Letters of invitation are sent out after the deadline for submitting course grades to the Registrar’s office has passed. To be eligible for Phi Theta Kappa, a student must have met the following requirements:

  • Completed 12 credit hours of associate degree course work at Landmark College
  • Maintained a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher
  • Maintained appropriate community membership (not be on Probation, Deferred Suspension, Suspension, or Expulsion within the Landmark College Judicial System)

Once a student has registered and been inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, their membership status is recorded on their official transcript by the Landmark College Registrar.

What does Phi Theta Kappa membership mean?

Membership in Phi Theta Kappa is recognized as an achievement by institutions of higher education throughout the United States, and many international countries. In fact, colleges and universities frequently establish scholarships specifically for Phi Theta Kappa members.

The Phi Theta Kappa Society headquarters in Mississippi provides support for members seeking monetary scholarships. College Fish is the society’s web presence for general scholarship opportunities. Additionally, the society administers a number of scholarship opportunities, such as the Coca-Cola, New Century Scholars, Guistwhite, and Jack Kent Cooke Scholarships.

Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunities for individual and chapter growth as scholars and student-leaders through their programs. The Five Star Chapter Development program challenges individual chapters to demonstrate growth in the areas of academic scholarship, leadership, and service. Equally valuable is the opportunity for individual members to develop their potential for academic and workplace success through the Five Star Competitive Edge Program. Finally, members have opportunities to showcase their work through submission of their literary and artistic accomplishment through competitions at the regional, national, and international levels.

How do I maintain membership in Phi Theta Kappa?

Once inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, you are a member for life—provided you remain a member in good standing. In order to do so, you must:

  • Maintain a grade point average of 3.25
  • Maintain appropriate community membership (not be on Probation, Deferred Suspension, Suspension, or Expulsion within the Landmark College Judicial System)

What happens if my GPA falls below 3.25?

If your grade point average falls below 3.25, you will be placed on probation for a semester. If at the end of the semester, your GPA is 3.25 or above, your status will return to member in good standing. If at the end of the semester, your GPA remains below 3.25, your membership in Phi Theta Kappa will be revoked.

What happens if I am involved in the Landmark College Judicial System?

Members found to be in default of the Landmark College Code of Conduct at the conclusion of the judicial process will be at risk of losing their membership in Phi Theta Kappa. If you are placed on Probation, Deferred Suspension, Suspension, or Expulsion within the Landmark College Judicial System, your membership in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society will be revoked.

What activities are spearheaded by the Beta Alpha Epsilon Chapter?

A central focus of Phi Theta Kappa is the Honors in Action Program, an interdisciplinary, contemporary topic of interest related to global challenges. Every two years, a new Honors Study Topic is identified by the Phi Theta Kappa Society. Members choose an issue related to the Honors Study topic to enhance their academic scholarship through research and discussion. Over the past several years, the members of Beta Alpha Epsilon have researched homelessness, social media addiction and its implications for students with ADHD, and educational technology. They have demonstrated their commitment to service through follow-up activities, such as holding a community discussions and multimedia activities.

What leadership opportunities are available within Phi Theta Kappa?

There are numerous leadership opportunities within Phi Theta Kappa. At the chapter level, there are officer positions and committee leadership positions for individual members to explore and develop their leadership skills. For those seeking a greater challenge, there are regional and international officer positions available. Your knowledge level of Phi Theta Kappa, motivation, eligibility, and availability are the only limits to leadership opportunities within the society.

Questions?

If you would like more information on Phi Theta Kappa, you can speak with your academic advisor, resident dean, or the Phi Theta Kappa advisor, Stephen Glover. Chapter officers are also a good source of information.

Golden Key International Honour Society

Golden Key is the international honor society for students enrolled in bachelor’s degree programs. The world’s largest collegiate honor society, Golden Key recognizes in its membership sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students across all majors and disciplines in eight countries. The purpose of this honor society is to recognize academic excellence and to enable members to realize their potential through advancement of academics, leadership, and service.

How do I become a member of Golden Key?
