Creighton Student Receives Manson A. Stewart Scholarship

Creighton Arts and Sciences senior Meghan Freeman of Duluth, Minn., has been awarded a $1,000 Manson A. Stewart Scholarship by the Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS). She is one of six recipients of the scholarship.

CAMWS is an organization of university, college, and K-12 teachers of Latin, Greek and all other studies in the field of classical antiquity. It is the largest of the regional classical associations, covering 31 states and three Canadian provinces.

“Meghan is a first-rate student whose awards and competitive admission to the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome prove what I've known all along from having taught her,” says Dr. Gregory Bucher, Meghan’s advisor. “She, like so many Creighton students, can compete with the best in the country.”

Freeman, an Honors student, is studying Classics and is currently doing research on a classical sculpture held in the Joslyn Art Museum’s collection in Omaha. She will spend the fall semester 2008 at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome.

Her work is supported by the Honors Program Bisenius Research Scholarship, a $3,200 award from a grant, given by the Bisenius family to Creighton’ Honors Program. Only one student is given the scholarship each year.
