Congrats to Amy Schroeder (’09), one of 16 graduate students chosen this year for the Lilly Graduate Fellows Program!

The Whitworth web site reports: “After graduating from Whitworth, Schroeder taught literature courses for a year at Payap University, in Chiang Mai, Thailand. During this time she developed a strong interest in pursuing her Christian vocation, which she says has led her toward becoming an English professor.

‘The English department at Whitworth taught me to love the difficulty of poetry; I probably would not have pursued it further had I not had such excellent literature professors,’ Schroeder says.

Amy will soon begin her Ph.D. at Baylor.
