The College of Liberal Arts honored its students April 19 with the presentation of the 2013 Henry and Mary Kearse Student Honors Awards for excellence in writing 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.
