The Perskys Honor Milton’s Student Writers and Artists

Some of Milton’s best student writers and artists gathered with faculty and guests in Cox Library on Monday evening for the Laurence S. Persky Memorial Awards. The annual awards are given for the best work appearing in Milton Academy student publications and honors excellence in creative writing, journalism, art, photography, and production.

Guest speaker Matthew Stewart, author and philosopher, spoke to students about the writing craft and how it is important for writers to be avid readers. Emily Franklin, Milton alumna and author, was one of the judges and attended the event. Emily received a Persky Award as a student in 1990.

Student Historians Share Culminating Work at the Annual Bisbee Awards

Students and faculty gathered for the spring tradition of Bisbee Prize presentations last Thursday. The nine winners were selected by their teachers for outstanding research on their U.S. history papers. The event in Wigglesworth Hall followed a new format that allowed for “students to have more in-depth and organic conversations about their process and work,” according to Robert McGuirk, history department chair. Students stood at individual tables where they could discuss their research with small groups of their peers, faculty, advisors and parents. Topics ranged from the 1918 Spanish influenza epidemic to the devastating effects of United Fruit’s banana monopoly.

The Bisbee Prize was established to honor Ethan Wyatt Bisbee, a former history faculty member who retired in 1993 after 40 years of teaching. The Prize was endowed in 2005 through a gift by John Warren, formerly of the history department, and his wife, Laura Warren ’78, former head of Robbins House.
