The Jane Donaldson Kepple Writing Prizes are awarded annually to four students for excellence in writing as judged by a committee of faculty members. The awards are given in four categories: Freshman English Essay; Senior English Essay; Poetry, Fiction, and Drama; and Scholarly Essay. These prizes were established in 1985 by Thomas R. Kepple, Jr. in memory of his wife.



The Cynthia Marshall Award was created in 2005 by family and friends of Professor Cynthia Marshall. The award is given to the most deserving senior majoring in English who is pursuing graduate studies in any field in the humanities.
