Two Seniors Receive Watson Dream Grants
Morgan Sleeper ‘11 of Deland, FL and Keren Yohannes ‘11, of Louisville, KY, have been awarded Thomas J. Watson Fellowships. The fellowship, a one-year grant for independent study and travel outside of the United States, is awarded annually to graduating college/university seniors. This year the Foundation awarded 40 fellowships out of the 148 finalists who were nominated, and the awardees came from only 23 of the 40 colleges on the Watson roster. The fellows come from select private liberal arts colleges and universities.
Can You Hear the Difference?
If you live in New York, you probably pronounce the words caught and cot quite differently. If you live in California, they most likely come out sounding the same. What Kaitlyn Arctander ’11 (Seacliff, New York) wanted to find out was if Midwesterners, too, were beginning to “merge” these vowel sounds.
