Moravian’s Annual Scholarship and Creative Endeavors Day on April 22

This year’s program dedicated in memory of Priscilla Payne Hurd

Poster PresentationBethlehem, Pa., April 18, 2013—The 8th Annual Student Scholarship and Creative Endeavors Day will be held on Monday, April 22 to showcase student research, honors projects, and creative work. This year, Moravian will dedicate the day to the memory of Priscilla Payne Hurd who generously established the Rokke Endowment for Student Research, which has supported dozens of student and faculty research endeavors.

Scholarship Day is an opportunity for students to share their work with others," said Michelle Schmidt, associate professor and chair of psychology and director of academic leadership programs. "There is real value for students to see what students in other disciplines are doing—much of it is work you would not have had any idea was happening here."

This year, 70 students representing 26 different areas of study are participating in the 2013 Scholars Day activities. “Congratulations to these individuals for all of their accomplishments and thanks also to their 34 faculty sponsors, Schmidt noted. “Since the inception of this event 8 years ago, 509 students have shared their scholarly accomplishments with the Moravian College community.
