Logan Fendley, French Studies Major, recieves CLASS Dean's Award of Merit 2017
EKU Senior Logan Fendley, EKU Honors program student and Globalization & International Affairs / French Studies double major, has been named the 1st ever College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences (CLASS) Dean's Award of Merit recipient.
The Dean's Award of Merit is the highest honor a college can give to a student and the newly formed CLASS has announced it's first recipient as of March 7, 2017. Students selected for this award have demonstrated exceptional academic achievements in an appropriate discipline as well as campus leadership, community service and the potential for professional achievement. Ms. Fendley will be honored at the Scholar's Assemby on Friday, April 14, 2017 in the Grand Reading Room of the Crabbe Library on EKU Richmond campus with mentors, friends, and family.
Ms. Fendley will be graduating after only three years in May of 2017. Her majors in Globalization & International Affairs and French Studies have taken her abroad twice in her time at EKU: She first went as an EKU representative to Germany and Austria as part of the Salzburg Global Citizenship Program. She then joined the Institute for American Universities on a trip through France, Belgium, and Morocco studying American Diplomacy and foreign policy through the role of the diplomat. Her knowledge of French and the international system also helped her to procure an internship at Kentucky Refugee Ministries as an English as a Second Language teacher. Ms. Fendley said, “Studying a language opened up more doors than I could have ever imagined. I met Consulate Generals, toured embassies, and travelled to five countries in just the three years I spent at EKU. French has completely changed my life.” She will be continuing her studies of languages and diplomacy at the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce in the fall.
The Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce is a highly-ranked, selective masters degree program in diplomacy and international commerce at the University of Kentucky located in Lexington, Kentucky. It is a graduate program devoted to the study of diplomacy, international affairs and commerce. With a small and select student body, only 35 students are admitted annually to pursue full-time study towards a master's degree. Ms. Fendley will begin attending the School this Fall 2017
