One of Dr. Michelle Hugue's students (rising senior Graham Welch) and one of Mr. Fawzi Emad's students (rising senior Luke Valenta) have been chosen as 2013-2014 Philip Merrill Presidential Scholars. Lecturers Hugue and Emad have been named by Welch and Valenta as the faculty mentors who have had the most impact on their academic achievements. This highly selective program recognizes academic excellence in UMD students and the important role that faculty members have as teachers and mentors. Mentors and scholars will be honored at a celebration luncheon on Nov. 5, 2013.
