Claire NadolskiWestover Honors senior wins top award

On Saturday April 5, Westover Honors senior Claire Nadolski won a top award at the Virginias Collegiate Honors Conference. In a field of 65 students representing sixteen campuses in Virginia and West Virginia, from George Mason University to Bluefield College, Claire was one of only 5 competitors to win highest honors. Her presentation, Evaluating Criticisms of Forcible Humanitarian Intervention in the Case Study of Genocide in Rwanda is her Westover Honors thesis and her senior thesis for political science.

She is pictured here with Dr. Paul Fitzgerald, president of the VCHC, and another faculty representative: both are great admirers of Claires research addressing a serious global problem. A double major in French and Political Science, Claire has represented Lynchburg College very strongly among other regional schools.
