April Andrew

A note from the Honors Program: April is a self-taught artist whose first formal instruction in painting took place during the fall 2013 offering of Painting I led by Prof. Vasilki Belezos for which she has earned Honors credit. Based on the body of work April produced for Painting I, she has a very promising career as an artist which also includes experience in musical theatre and poetry. April is continuing on an Honors track during the spring 2014 semester as a student in Prof. Mark Kjellman's Honors Colloquium, an interdisciplinary course focusing on Myths and Global Cinema. Her creative talents will be featured in an equaling compelling honors project for Prof. Kjellman's course that will be shared during Honors Presentations Day on May 5, 2014.

A note from the Honors Program: Shaoyu Chang distinguished himself as the only student who delivered two Honors Presentations at the recent Honors Presentations Day event in December 2013: SCI 207 Biomanufacturing II (SCI 207) and Microeconomics (SSI 221). His drive to excel academically was realized through RCC’s Honors Program whereas his earlier experience at a community College in North Carolina did not provide a platform for his scholarship to be featured. We are glad that he seized the opportunity to showcase his intellectual abilities at RCC!
