The award, created by the Student Government Organization at the time of President Landman’s retirement from the University,  is given to a student in recognition of his or her outstanding record as a student at Arcadia, commitment to community service, experience studying abroad, and record of academic success.

“This year’s honoree, Grace Wainwright, has studied abroad in England, engaged in community service during her three years of involvement with the For the Women student organization, and served as a Resident Assistant for three years,” said Assitant Professor Mark Wade. “She has excelled in her major. It is our pleasure to present the 2009-10 Bette Landman Award to Grace Wainwright, whose record of academic success and leadership embody the vision of President Emerita, Bette Landman.”

Wainwright, of Jacksonville, N.J., is majoring in History, with a minor in Theater Arts and Secondary Education certification in Social Studies. “Last spring, I attended King’s College in London, England to study history, classics and war studies.”
