Open Access Presidential Scholars Thesis
Grace Ann Hovet
As a senior at the University of Northern Iowa ( UNI), my project to fulfill a segment of my Presidential Scholarship is to plan and propose a structure change for leadership within the UNI English Club. Currently, I am acting as an intern for the English Department. For my internship, I act as the student contact for the four student organizations/activities within the department: English Club, Inner Weather, Sigma Tau Delta, and The Student As Critic Conference (an annual, state wide essay competition held on campus).
The written components of my project consist of a paper dealing with a proposal for a new leadership structure for the English Club and two manuals, one for the English Club and the other an organizational guide for editors of Inner Weather, UNI·s student creative writing journal. My project stems from my experiences not only as an English major but as a member of the English Club, executive editor of Inner Weather (a project supported by the English Club), and a member of Sigma Tau Delta (National English Honor Society).
