2 English Majors Awarded Internships with Phi Beta Kappa Society
Juniors Vallery Bergez and Evan Hierholzer were awarded writing internships with the
Phi Beta Kappa (PBK) Society's national office in Washington, D.C. During their internships,
which run through June 15, 2013, both students will write a minimum of six publishable
articles for Phi Beta Kappa's new website, The Key Reporter.
Bergez, an English and French double major, and Hierholzer, an English major, will
research and write articles from UD.
"I want to emphasize the importance of education in a culture largely influenced by
technological advancement," said Bergez.
"I plan on publishing articles concerning not only PBK members, but also on broader
topics involving literature, religion and philosophy, and their interplay with the
liberal arts and culture," said Hierholzer.
Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most respected undergraduate honors organization
in the United States, selecting junior and senior undergraduates who have demonstrated
broad cultural interests, scholarly achievement and good character. The University
of Dallas was chartered as the Eta Chapter of Texas in 1989.
