Prof. Polyvia Parara honored as faculty mentor

Dr. Polyvia Parara, Visiting Assistant Professor of Modern Greek in the Department of Classics, has received recognition for her outstanding teaching and mentoring.  Ms. Anna Bella Sicilia, a rising senior who is earning a minor in modern Greek, has been named a Philip Merrill Presidential Scholar for 2017-18 and in turn has named Dr. Parara as the faculty mentor who has had the greatest impact on her academic achievement.  Both Ms. Sicilia and Dr. Parara will be honored at a luncheon on November 17 at University House. 

Dr. Gregory Staley, Professor of Classics, was named as an outstanding faculty mentor by one of last year's Philip Merrill Presidential Scholars, Mr. Joshua Weaver.
