OUTSTANDING THESIS/DISSERTATION AWARD
1ST PRIZE THESIS - HUMANITIES/FINE ARTS

The Graduate School is pleased to announce these awards in recognition of the quality of theses and dissertations that our graduate students are producing. As our guide for the criteria and nomination cycle, we have adopted the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) outstanding dissertation award model. Our awards will be monetary and the applicable dissertation award winner will also be nominated to CGS as part of their annual competition to recognize an outstanding dissertation representing original work that makes an unusually significant contribution to the discipline being considered that year.

"Foremost, Kyle's thesis is the first full-length (i.e., longer than a paper or an article) study on this important playwright. Eno, who has (in)famously been labeled "Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation," is a Guggenheim Fellowship recipient and his play Thom Pain (based on nothing) was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize in Drama. Kyle is, to the best of my knowledge, the first to approach Eno's work from multiple perspectives: as literature; as literature demanding embodiment; as philosophy; as language problem; and as seemingly anti-theatrical theatre." -Dr. Chansky

STUDENT PAPER AWARDS IN MUSIC THEORY

David Forrest, candidate for the PhD in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Music Theory at TTU, won both student paper awards at the joint meeting for the Texas Society for Music Theory and the South Central Society for Music Theory for his paper "Twentieth-Century Organum: Parallel Harmonization in the Music of Benjamin Britten." The two societies had separate program committees and therefore each independently came up with their own decision.

The Texas Society for Music Theory and the South Central Society for Music Theory are two separate organizations who held a joint conference this year (Feb. 6-7 at the University of Houston). Research papers were submitted to both societies by students and professors from universities across North America. Paper selections for both societies are blind which means the program committees do not know the name or student status of submitting authors. Furthermore, David's research will be published in the Spring 2010 issue of Music Theory Spectrum, the premier research journal in the area of music theory. The title of the article is "Prolongation in the Choral Music of Benjamin Britten." We are very proud of David's outstanding accomplishment!

OUTSTANDING THESIS/DISSERTATION AWARD
2nd PRIZE DISSERTATION - HUMANITIES/FINE ARTS

The Graduate School is pleased to announce these awards in recognition of the quality of theses and dissertations that our graduate students are producing. As our guide for the criteria and nomination cycle, we have adopted the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) outstanding dissertation award model. Our awards will be monetary and the applicable dissertation award winner will also be nominated to CGS as part of their annual competition to recognize an outstanding dissertation representing original work that makes an unusually significant contribution to the discipline being considered that year.

"For this document, Ian is both providing a fundamental re-evaluation of musical style in the period, but is also conducting extensive oral-history and interview research which has never before been undertaken on this topic. His research thus fills gaps in both analysis and the basic factual data about 1950s Latin jazz. The document addresses issues of class, race, gender, economics and music in the volatile decade of the 1950s, drawing upon methodologies from semiotics, oral history, ethnomusicology and musicology." - Dr. Smith

ACTORS TO PERFORM AT THE KENNEDY CENTER

Jeffrey Scott was chosen as one of three people from the cast of the play The Solution (performed here at Tech) to participate in the American College Theatre Festival Irene Ryan Auditions at the Regional Festival in Huntsville, Texas at Sam Houston State University. He then had to choose an acting partner to go with him. Jeff was one of two people picked from 150 actors from five different states to go to the Kennedy Center. This has not happened at Texas Tech since 1991. Paul was a very big part of this, as Jeff's partner in the two duet scenes. The actors will participate in workshops with professional practitioners, and they will also get to audition for professional companies and programs. We are extremely proud of their work.
Hershell Norwood
Hershell Norwood, Department of Theatre and Dance, CVPA
PLAY ACCEPTED BY THE DOWNTOWN URBAN THEATRE FESTIVAL

Fine Arts Doctoral Program student Hershell Norwood's play, Billie's Blues, was accepted by the Downtown Urban Theatre Festival (DUTF) from among more than 1,500 scripts as one of the final 12 to have a reading presentation this June in New York at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre (lower Manhattan). DUTF is a two-week celebration of urban theatrical expression marked by a multicultural perspective which "showcases theatrical works that echo the true spirit of urban life and speak to a whole new generation whose lives defy categorizing along conventional lines." Norwood's play is also featured at a fund-raiser by T. Bankolé, director at the New Federal Theatre, who is exploring the development of Billie's Blues into a full production.

STUDENT ACADEMIC CITIZENSHIP AWARD

To obtain the Student Academic Citizenship Award, two students are nominated by the Dean of their college and the Tech Parents awards committee makes the final selections from those nominees. This recognition is for that undergraduate student who has achieved excellence in academics, and who during that same period, has demonstrated outstanding citizenship/service. Service, at best, means recognizing a needed public service, voluntarily identifying with it, and demonstrating superior leadership and/or a high quality of performance in fulfilling that public need. Congratulations Lindsey for being the recipient of this honorable award!
