Adrienne M. Nadeau, a junior writing major from Clearwater, has been awarded the Timothy M. Smith Inspiration Through Exploration Award by the UT Honors Committee.
The award is presented annually to an Honors Program student near the end of the fall semester. It provides a talented student author with an opportunity to travel and find additional inspiration for pursuing literary aspirations.
Nadeau has earned a nearly perfect 3.94 grade point average at the University while pursuing a rigorous Honors Program curriculum. In addition, she has had an article published in the 2005 issue of Respondez, the annual Honors Program nonfiction journal, and recently entered the Florida Collegiate Honors Council Writing Contest.
In her application for the Smith Award, she described her plans to travel to Israel in summer 2006 and write about her experiences there.
