The Italian Studies faculty is enormously proud to have one of their students, Paige Gulley, as the recipient of this year’s Cheverton Award. The Cheverton Trophy, awarded annually to the outstanding graduating senior, is the highest undergraduate student honor at Chapman University. A gift of the class of 1929, the original bronze Cheverton Trophy cup remains on exhibit in Argyros Forum along with its successor, a silver bowl. Upon the trophies are engraved the names of all Cheverton awardees since 1929.
Paige Gulley is double majoring in French and History and double minoring in Italian Studies and in the University Honors Program. In addition to her absolutely outstanding coursework in Italian language and culture (that lead her to being invited to present her scholarship at an international competitive conference last fall), Paige successfully completed a period of study in Italy within the context of the program’s summer course, served as the vice-president of the Italian Club, and is about to begin an internship with the Bowers Museum on an exhibition on Italian armors.
Paige’s Cheverton Award coincides with her being selected as the Outstanding Graduating Minor in Italian Studies this year.
Congratulazioni vivissime e tantissimi auguri, Paige!
