Miami junior wins Beinecke Scholarship

Shauna Hanley, a junior from Char-don, has received a $32,000 Beinecke Scholarship for graduate study in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

Hanley is one of only 20 students nationwide — and the first Miami student — to receive this honor. Recipients are selected on the basis of intellectual ability, scholastic achievement and personal promise.

A history and American studies double major, Hanley has served as sports editor for The Miami Student.

She has been selected as an Undergraduate Summer Scholar and a College of Arts and Science Dean’s Scholar for 2002-2003 and will conduct research on heritage tourism in St. Augustine, Fla., with faculty adviser Marguerite Shaffer.

"Shauna is a student who makes teaching the ideal profession. She has a deep intelligence coupled with enthusiastic joy about learning," says Charlotte Newman Goldy (history). "I am glad that the Beinecke committee recognized the qualities that Miami faculty see in her."

After graduation next year, Hanley plans to study history and American studies in graduate school, with a focus on cultural and popular heritage studies.

The Beinecke Scholarship program was established in 1971 by the board of the Sperry & Hutchinson Co. (S&H) following the lead of S&H president William Sperry Beinecke, who was an ardent advocate for business support for charitable and educational institutions. The scholarship is intended to encourage and enable highly motivated college juniors to pursue graduate school opportunities.
