Two faculty members receive Whiting Awards

In recognition of teaching performance, two Kenyon faculty members have received Whiting Awards for the 2002 - 03 academic year. Assistant Professor of Art History Sarah Blick has received a Whiting Summer Scholarship Stipend. Assistant Professor of Music Theodore Buehrer has received a Whiting Teaching Fellowship.

The awards are funded by a grant from the Mrs. Giles Whiting Foundation to recognize outstanding teaching in the humanities and to support the scholarship of junior, tenure-track faculty members. Blick will receive a $6,000 stipend to support research for an article on the development of English medieval shrines. Buehrer will receive a one-year junior leave, which includes a $10,000 travel and research fund to study the music of jazz pianist and composer Mary Lou Williams.
