Congratulations to History Major Jennifer Staton, Winner of a Fulbright Fellowship!
The History Department is proud to celebrate the achievement of Jennifer Staton, who just received word that she has won a Fulbright fellowship to teach English in Germany during Academic Year 2009-2010. The fellowship will cover almost all of her expenses. She will be placed at a high school and will assist an English teaching inside and outside the classroom.
This prestigious honor is the culmination of years of hard work at UAH. In addition to majoring in History, Jennifer has completed a minor in English and has also taken several courses in German. She has also developed her teaching skills by working as a tutor in the Writing Center and in the Peer Assisted Study Session program led by the Student Success Center. Jennifer also spent two weeks in Germany in May 2008 as part of a Global Studies/History course on Nazi Germany.
In addition to fulfilling her responsibilities as a teaching assistant and cultural ambassador, Jennifer will also have the chance to travel, visit art museums, and pursue her interests in early modern German and English history by visiting libraries and archives.
Pictured here see two photographs of Jennifer taken in Germany in May 2008, one picturing her with a painting by Johannes Vermeer in the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin and a second featuring her in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.
Congratulations, Jennifer. We are proud of you and wish you all the best!
