Sweetland faculty Jamie L. Jones (left) and Angela Berkley (below) were recently awarded the 2014 BEN Prize for Outstanding Teaching of Writing. The BEN Prize, funded by an endowment in honor of alum and English Advisory Board member Larry Kirshbaum, is awarded each year to two Lecturers who have achieved a high level of excellence in the teaching of writing.

This term Dr. Jones' courses include ENGLISH 407 - Topics in English Language and Literature: American Literature and Journalism and LHSP 230 - Writing and Arts II: Chasing the Whale: Reading and Responding to Moby-Dick. Prof. Berkley currently teaches English 125 Writing and Academic Inquiry and English 225 Academic Argumentation. Both provide undergraduate and graduate-level writing assistance through Sweetland's Writing Workshop.

Congratulations to both on their well-deserved honors.
