Patricia Zimmermann was recently named the recipient of the Park School Faculty Writing Award for her essay, "Humanist and Poetic Activism: The Rob Flaherty Film Seminar in the 1950s."
Zimmerman, professor of screen studies and Codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, was selected unanimously by a judging panel consisting of Park School faculty whose professional expertise represent scholarly writing, journalism, and screen/scriptwriting.
According to the judges, Zimmermann's work "represents a culmination of multiple years of solid scholarship and examines an area of cinema history that gave birth to the early independent film festivals that has rarely been explored."
The essay was published by University of St. Andrews Press (2012).

For those who took part in our annual Recognition of Service luncheon last week, this announcement will come as little surprise. It was during this luncheon that I began our celebration with the news that the College has met and would likely exceed its enrollment targets. I suspect that such good news travels quickly across campus. But in the event it has not, let me follow my celebratory comment with a more official announcement.
