Randolph alumna wins first-place at international English honor society convention

Katy Boyer '16 wins award at Sigma Tau Delta convention.

Katy Boyer ’16 (holding the envelope) won first-place in the alumni creative writing category at the 2017 Sigma Tau Delta convention.

Katy Boyer ’16 received the first-place award in the alumni creative writing category at the recent Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society Convention.

Boyer was honored for her short story, “Apples, Almonds, and Apricots,” which she wrote for her honors senior project. This is the second year in a row that a Randolph student has finished in first-place for a major convention award. Lindsay Brents ’16 earned first-place in the convention’s fiction writing category in 2016.

“Sigma Tau Delta is the largest English honor society in the world, and students from hundreds of colleges submit their work to the convention, and over the years, acceptance into the convention has become more and more competitive,” said Gary Dop, a Randolph English professor. “For Katy’s work to finish in first place in her category is remarkable and speaks of the quality of our English program at Randolph.”

Along with Boyer, three other Randolph students were selected to participate in this year’s convention in Louisville, Kentucky. Alexis Collins ’17, Amelia Harrington ’17, and Sarah Sirker ’17 each shared their writing, poetry, and other works at the event.
