BC's Rachael Sloan Receives Alfred H. Nolle Scholarship

Rachael Sloan has been named one of 10 recipients of the Alfred H. Nolle Scholarship by Alpha Chi, the national college honor society.

Sloan, a liberal studies major, is the daughter of Roger and Lynna Sloan of Roanoke, Va.

The Nolle Scholarship, which provides a stipend of $1,500, was created for deserving students in their senior year of undergraduate study. To be eligible, a nominee must be a full-time undergraduate student, a member of Alpha Chi and submit a written application including a scholarly work significant to the student’s field of study.

Sloan’s scholarly work was “Teaching Bulgarian Learners of English: An Analysis of Phonology, Morphology, Syntax, Semantics, and Lexical Aspects.”

In addition to Alpha Chi, Sloan is a member of the Philomathes Society, Bridgewater’s scholastic honor society, and Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership honor society. She is a member of the Flory Fellowship of Scholars, the college’s honors program.

Sloan is a member of the Honor Council and will serve as co-chair during the 2013-14 academic year.

The scholarship is named for Dr. Alfred Nolle, who served as the society’s secretary-treasurer for 41 years. Ten Nolle Scholarships are awarded each year.
