ASU Symposium Contest Winners Announced
Winners of the 2008 University Symposium Contest were announced Monday by the E. James Holland Angelo State University Symposium Committee.
Brandy C. Huerta, a San Angelo senior studio art major, won the art category with her print, “Setting up the Lambs.” Yolanda Fay Elias, a junior English/mathematics major from Seminole, won the written composition category with her essay, “A Transcendental Perspective on Surveillance.”
The two students will be honored during an awards presentation Thursday, Dec. 4, at 4 p.m. in the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Entries were judged on creativity, originality, depth of thought, technical competency and relation to the theme of this year’s symposium, “Privacy in America: Balancing the Individual and Society,” held in October. Faculty judges were Gabriela Serrano of the English Department and Ben Sum of the Art and Music Department.
The symposium is conducted each fall and is named in honor of Holland, the former dean of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, who established the yearly event. The broad theme of the symposium is American values, with each year’s event featuring nationally renowned speakers addressing topics associated with values.
