Mikelonis Award Recipient
Kristin O'Connor, a junior in the Scientific and Technical Communication major in Writing Studies, has been chosen as this year's recipient of the Victoria Mikelonis Memorial Award. Kristin is interested in technical writing, usability, and editing, and she will be studying abroad next year. This award offers a $200 award every year to an exceptional undergraduate student whose academic pursuits reflect a commitment to scientific and technical communication, rhetorical studies, and/or intercultural communication. (Suggested uses are books and a membership in the STC student chapter.) The award is presented in recognition of Professor Mikelonis's leadership, commitment, and her tremendous contributions to the University of Minnesota with the hope that the student will continue to build on Professor Mikelonis's work.
