Senior Paige Allen was named co-winner of the 2021 Moses Taylor Pyne Honor Prize, the highest general distinction conferred on an undergraduate. The University is looking into ways to celebrate the honorees as a community later in the semester.
Allen, from Mountain Top, Pennsylvania, is an English concentrator who is also pursuing certificates in Creative Writing, Humanistic Studies, Music Theater and Theater. She is a member of Phi Beta Kappa; a two-time recipient of the Shapiro Prize for Academic Excellence in 2018 and 2019; and a recipient of the Outstanding Work Award from the Programs in Theater and Music Theater in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
In previous years, the Pyne Prize has been awarded to certificate students Emma Coley (2020), Annabel Barry (2019), and Solveig Gold (2017).
