October 14th, 2013 Posted in College News & Events

CCC student Steven Hoyt, received the 2012-13 Cayuga Community College Library Research Award for his paper, “‘Bartleby’: A Story of the Struggle of the Working Class,” based on Herman Melville’s classic story “Bartleby, the Scrivener.”  He submitted the paper for an assignment in his English 102 Freshman Writing II course and then decided to enter the paper for award consideration.

As the winner of the 10th annual Library Research Award, Hoyt received a prize of $200. His name will be engraved on a permanent plaque in the College’s Norman F. Bourke Memorial Library. “The quality and variety of the research was quite impressive,” Faculty Member Greg Sevik, Ph.D. said.

“I was very excited and proud that my work was recognized,” Steven said. “As a non-traditional student it is gratifying to win an award that is only given to one student every year.”
