By Hannah Mason, Assistant Editor

Senior English Education major Rachel Wurster is one of two national recipients of this year’s Robert W. Sledge Fellowship, through the national honor fraternity Alpha Chi. Wurster was selected based on her submission of an academic paper, entitled “Her World, Her Way?: An Exploration of Racial Depictions and Stereotypes in Seventeen Magazine.” The fellowship includes a $3,500 award to go toward a graduate degree program.
