Senior Julie Shoemaker, recipient of the Al Sanders Scholarship Program award, went to Nashville to present her winning essay and receive a $1000 award at the National Religious Broadcasters Association convention February 8. Accompanied by communication arts chair Dr. Annalee Ward, Shoemaker delivered her speech on "The Abercrombie & Fitch Syndrome."

"I was impressed with how Julie presented herself," Ward said. "She delivered her essay with a great deal of poise and grace. She represented the College very well."

Shoemaker's essay centered on how Christians should respond to society's increasing acceptance of immorality. She wrote the paper as an assignment for Dr. Ward's communication ethics class.
