The Kellie Rayburn Outstanding Thesis Award

The Kellie Rayburn Outstanding Thesis Award

The Rayburn Award is presented annually to the writer of the year's outstanding thesis. The award honors the memory of Kellie Rayburn, an alumna of the M.A. program and a long-time lecturer in the English department until her death in 2001. Since 2004, Honorable Mention awards are also presented. Thesis and Alternative thesis writers are nominated by their faculty readers, and award winners are selected by a sub-committee of the Graduate Committee.
