The Department of English Language and Literature wishes to congratulate Jaclyn Legge for being one of the recipients of the Provost Scholar Award. Funded by the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) and administered by Teaching and Learning Services, the Provost Scholar Award is valued at $1,000 and is given to undergraduate students who have demonstrated outstanding achievements in research, community engagement, immersive learning and/or international activities.

Jaclyn is a devoted and engaged student who has contributed meaningfully to several significant community-building and recruitment initiatives at Carleton. Since September, she has served as a CU Student Ambassador where she produced a video outlining what a day in the life of an English major looks like and participated in a Spotlight Series with Prof. Pat Whiting that promotes the Department of English Language and Literature to prospective students. For the last two years, she consistently published a student blog for the department, which played a role in building a sense of community, particularly in the past year when students have been isolated during the COVID-19 pandemic. She has also shown leadership in other recruitment initiatives, such as the production of recruitment videos for the Department of English Language and Literature.

Our most heartfelt congratulations, Jaclyn!
