Creighton Junior Earns Classics Award
Adam Karnik, of Omaha, a Creighton University junior majoring in mathematics and classical languages, is one of six undergraduate students nationwide to receive the Manson A. Stewart Scholarship in 2009.
The honor, which includes a $1,000 scholarship, was awarded to Karnik by the Classical Association of the Middle West and South. The organization, comprised of university, college, and kindergarten-12th grade teachers of Latin, Greek, and other classical studies, is the largest North American regional classical association, covering 31 states and three Canadian provinces.
Karnik also recently was awarded the Creighton University Presidential Mentoring Scholarship as well as a national Goldwater Scholarship for academic merit in the undergraduate fields of mathematics, science and engineering.
Karnik’s future plans include studying mathematics in graduate school, continuing mathematical research and teaching at the university level.
