Date: April 4, 2012
Jonathan Langerak is a recipient of the 2012 Manson A. Stewart Scholarship, awarded by the Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS).
CAMWS is an academic organization that focuses upon the study of ancient Greece and Rome. Founded in 1905, it is the largest regional classical association in North America, covering thirty-two states and three Canadian provinces.
The Stewart Scholarship recognizes outstanding young classicists from colleges and universities in the CAMWS area. Each recipient will receive $1,000 to support his or her study of the Classics during the 2012-13 academic year and a year's membership in CAMWS itself.
Mr. Langerak is one of six winners announced on March 31, 2012, during the 108th Annual Meeting of CAMWS, held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He is the third GVSU Stewart Scholarship recipient since 2009.
Also recognized in 2012 were students from Creighton University; Macalester College; the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; the University of North Carolina, Greensboro; and Ripon College.
