May 7, 2015

In recognition of exceptional leadership in the community of English majors, Jenna Cavanaugh ’16 and Emma Cope-Flanagan ’16 have earned the 2015 Maurice Morin Citizenship Prize.

Cavanaugh, an English major from Glastonbury, Connecticut, and Cope-Flanagan, an English and sociology major from Westwood, Massachusetts, have demonstrated the habits of mind that Stonehill seeks to help students cultivate.

“Jenna and Emma have done an excellent job of fostering a sense of community among English majors at Stonehill,” says Jared Green, associate professor of English and department chair.

In addition to maintaining high standards for their English coursework and organizing gatherings of the Stonehill English Society as co-presidents, Cavanaugh and Cope-Flanagan are active contributors to the cultural and residential life of the College.

Cavanaugh, who hopes to work in the publishing industry, is editor of The Cairn literary magazine and culture editor of the Rolling Stonehill magazine.

Cope-Flanagan, who plans to attend law school in Boston, is a resident assistant in O’Hara Village, a resident staff assistant in the Pilgrim Heights living area and also serves as the English Society’s treasurer.

“English faculty and students alike are grateful for their leadership, enthusiasm and good cheer,” adds Green.
