Student Spotlight: Will Franklin

Will Franklin

Our first, of many more to come, ‪#‎ecuengl‬ ‪#‎StudentSpotlight‬ is President of the ECU English Club, Will Franklin. As a senior English major, Will’s favorite classes have been Shakespeare’s Tragedies with Dr. Wilson-Okamura and Lit Theory with Dr. Steen. During his time spent at ECU, he has served as the student representative to both the English Executive Committee and the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee. When he is not involved with university affairs, he enjoys playing golf and starting his mornings with a 3 mile run.

After graduation, he plans to complete an internship with Disney, and gain work experience to help start his career in publishing. His dream job would be working with for The New Yorker as a part of the creative/editorial team.

“The real benefit of being an English major is that you learn how to think critically through reading and writing, communicate well, and express ideas clearly. I don’t know another major that accomplishes all three.”


Bauer profiled by grad school

Bauer

The ECU Graduate School has released a faculty profile of English department distinguished professor Margaret Bauer.

“For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a teacher,” Bauer said in the profile. “Then, during high school, an English teacher, Mrs. Cotton, showed us how much Kate Chopin had packed into her two-page short story, “The Story of an Hour,” and I wanted to learn how to read like that, how to see all of those wonderful details, the numerous nuances that revealed the story of a woman’s whole life in just two pages.”

Read Dr. Bauer’s full profile.


Eble honored for doctoral mentoring

Dr. Michelle Eble

Michelle Eble was honored Friday at the Research Week Recognition Luncheon for her role in mentoring graduate students.

Eble was selected as this year’s winner of the ECU Distinguished Graduate Faculty Mentor Award, Doctoral Category. Graduate School Dean Paul Gemperline said Eble was being recognized because “under Dr. Eble’s leadership, the PhD program in the department has flourished, having undergone a major overhaul of advising, curriculum, and comprehensive exam procedures. She led the development of innovative professional development seminars for first-year PhD students and has overseen the graduation of 15 students in the past four years.”

The award includes a cash prize of $1000 and a plaque.
