Honors Thesis Mentor Award, Spring 2020 Winner                                              English Professor Ned Stuckey-French

This award recognizes and honors the late Dr. Stuckey-French’s distinguished work directing and advising undergraduate research through the Honors in the Major program.

Here are samples of what his student nominator, Angela Lertkiratikul, and his colleague, Dr. Andrew Epstein, wrote about the mentorship and dedication of Dr. Stuckey-French:

“He made sure everything was always in the best interest of his students. His ability to teach and connect with students stems from his heart of gold, notable storytelling, and providing different mediums for students to create and communicate through.” - Angela Lertkiratikul

"I was always impressed by how he approached his students’ work with such genuine interest and curiosity, meeting them on their own terms, but also driving them to push further and think more deeply. Students were drawn to his deep knowledge and his passion for ideas, culture, history, politics, and, of course, literature. He also managed the difficult balancing act of being a very warm, encouraging, and supportive mentor while still maintaining the highest standards and expectations." - English Professor Andrew Epstein

The FSU Honors Program is grateful for Dr. Stuckey’s contributions to student success in the Honors in the Major program.
