English names Dillon Scholarship recipient
For academic year 2014-2015, the English department's Richard T. Dillon Scholarship has been awarded to Dina Elfadli. A resident of Colorado for the last twenty-two years, Elfadli grew up in Khartoum, Sudan. As an English major in the Film Studies program, she hopes to translate the stories she heard in childhood to share them with others. She plans to achieve a teaching license in graduate school to better help women in her community understand the importance of English, and most importantly to enjoy it. A non-traditional student with four children, she faced many difficulties in pursuing her education because of family commitments. She counts her best accomplishment as having her children in college, and she accompanies her son every morning to our campus.
