Granville Resident Named Denison's Richard Kraus Community Scholar
Posted: November 23, 2002
The Denison University English department has named Granville resident Marianne Moore as winner of a Richard Kraus Community Scholar award. Moore is using the award to take associate Professor Dennis Read's course "Success Stories and True Confessions: A Study in Autobiography."
Community Scholars are residents of Licking County, 30 years of age or older, who may enroll in one course at Denison on a non-credit basis. Kraus was instrumental in establishing the Community Scholar Program. A student-faculty-community writing group that he instigated in the winter of 1976 also continues to meet at Denison.
Kraus, an emeritus member of the English department who died in 1999 at age 75, taught writing at Denison from 1966 until his retirement in 1991. As a tribute to his legacy in creative writing, memorial gift funds endowed a fund to sponsor Community Scholars interested in pursuing English department course offerings.
Letters of application for Community Scholar funding should be sent to: Sandy Runzo, chair of the English Department, Denison University, P.O. Box M,43023. Deadline for spring semester is Dec. 19th and the application letter should name the course for which funding is sought and the applicant's reasons for wanting to take that course.
Denison University, founded in 1831, is an independent, residential liberal arts institution located in Granville, Ohio. A highly selective college enrolling 2,100 full-time undergraduate students from all 50 states and dozens of foreign countries, Denison is a place where innovative faculty and motivated students collaborate in rigorous scholarship, civic engagement and the cultivation of independent thinking.
