Gish writes about Amy Biehl for new book

Dr. Steven Gish, Distinguished Research Professor of History, recently wrote “Amy Biehl’s Last Home: A Bright Life, a Tragic Death, and a Journey of Reconciliation in South Africa” (University of Ohio Press, 2018).

Biehl, a Fulbright scholar in 1992-93, was the only American killed in South Africa’s political violence during the last decade of apartheid. Biehl’s parents ultimately forgave the young men who killed their daughter and became icons of reconciliation in a still racially divided nation.

AUM grad receives scholarship

Cerina Splunge, a recent AUM Childhood Education graduate, was awarded the Harold D. Drummond Scholarship from Kappa Delta Pi. Dr. Tami Shelley, Assistant Professor in the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, and Technology nominated Splunge for this award. The scholarship is awarded to undergraduate or graduate students in elementary education. The scholarship is to be used for education expenses, including tuition, textbooks or teaching resources in the classroom. Splunge’s essay topic was on the life experiences that led her to study education and how those experiences will influence her role as an educator.
