The College of Liberal Arts honored students April 20 with a luncheon and awards presentation in University Gallery. Student achievement in writing was recognized with the 2012 Henry and Mary Kearse Student Honors Awards for excellence in liberal arts coursework. Faculty members recommended students based on writing assignments done in individual classes. The awards were created in 1980 thanks to a donation from Henry J. Kearse and his wife, Mary, a longtime member of RIT’s Nathaniel Rochester Society.
