It’s Reading and Review Day at the University of North Dakota, which means it is also the day that the School of Graduate Studies recognizes the outstanding research and scholarship of graduates in the categories of Dissertation, Thesis and Creative Exhibition.

Our 2013 Distinguished Creative Exhibition Award will be presented to Patrick Awotwe, MFA today at 10am in the East Asia Room of the Chester Fritz Library. A Ghanaian native, Patrick’s exhibition, Adinkra the Messenger, reflected aspects of his own cultural heritage through the use of metals and fibers in Jewelry design. He used Ghanaian traditional symbols to convey social, political, religious and historical issues that have impacted his country.


Read our Grad Story with Patrick here, and read more about the awards here.

Others recognized today, though unable to be present, are Eric Netterlund (Master of Arts in Communication) and John Degenstein (MS Chemical Engineering). Both are now pursuing PhD programs at University of Colorado and Purdue University respectively. Advisors Dr Timothy Pasch and Dr Yun Ji will accept the awards on their behalf.

All are welcome and a reception will follow.
