Katie Luckenbill was awarded the Outstanding Student Award for the Master of Humanities Program in the College of Liberal Arts for 2015. Katie grew up in the Dayton area and earned her BA in Classical Humanities at Wright State University. She then pursued a Master of Humanities, again with a focus on Classics. Katie's MHUM thesis examined the role of the cavalry in the texts of the 4th Century BCE Greek writer, Xenophon. During her masters degree, Katie began teaching Latin part-time at a local middle school. Following graduation, Katie will be teaching Latin and English As a Second Language at Carroll High School in Dayton. She credits both of her teaching opportunities to the support and recommendations of her professors. She says that her experience at WSU was wonderful and that she has truly enjoyed working with all of the professors in the masters program. She is pictured below with her thesis advisor, Dr. Bruce Laforse.
