Congratulations go to senior Tereza Pintur who received a red ribbon in this year’s Cleveland Clinic eXpressions Language Program for her piece titled “Hope.”
Sponsored by Cleveland Clinic’s Office of Civic Education Initiatives, the language eXpressions competition gives students the opportunity to convey the meaning of research conducted by Cleveland Clinic summer interns through writing. Last year, six NDCL students won spots in the Clinic’s prestigious internship program.
“I am so excited and honored that my work was selected,” Tereza said. “It was really interesting to read about junior Brady Kaucic’s research project and write about it. I really enjoyed participating in this rewarding program.”
“Tereza did a fantastic job of evoking a fictional mother’s voice and really brought to life the research Brady shared with her at the start of this project. She really captured the love and concern of the mother in a way that made her story feel authentic,” said English department chairperson Beth Walsh-Moorman, who guided Tereza with her submission.
Tereza joins nine other NDCL students who captured awards in the eXpressions Art Program announced last month. This year’s competition was the biggest and toughest yet with a record number of entries, according to Bryan Pflaum, director of creative learning in the Clinic’s Office of Civic Education Initiatives.
All of the award-winning submissions will be featured in the Clinic’s eXpressions catalogue and will be displayed in the 2014 eXpressions Art and Language eXhibition, which will open with a formal reception at the Cleveland Museum of Art on Jan. 30.
