Posted: May 5, 2010
Each spring the College of Liberal Arts honors as Dean’s Distinguished Graduates twelve graduating seniors who have proved themselves outstanding in the areas of scholarship, leadership, and service. This year one of those chosen is a LLILAS student, Anna Nicole Kreisberg.
Nicole is a double major in Latin American Studies and Anthropology, and she is earning departmental honors from Latin American Studies with a thesis entitled “Industrial Enslavement: H-2B Guest Workers and the Quest for Justice.“ Her awards and scholarships include two Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Undergraduate Scholarships from LLILAS; a Davidson Family Endowed Scholarship in Latin American Studies, also from LLILAS; and an Undergraduate Research Fellowship. Nicole has been active on the university speech team, in Junior Fellows as an avid researcher, and in immigration advocacy. Following graduation, she will join Teach for America.
