Brewer, Ye, Bettler and Aguilar-Monsalve lead honors recipients

Seniors Guyu Ye (Xiangfan, China) and Chris Brewer (Trafalgar, Ind.), along with Associate Professor of Communication Bill Bettler and Associate Professor of Spanish Luis Aguilar-Monsalve, led a list of award recipients at Hanover College's 76th annual Honors Convocation. The event was held, Thursday, April 11, in Fitzgibbon Recital Hall.

Ye, who double-majors in economics and mathematics, earned the Henry C. Long Citation for Scholarship and General Excellence as the outstanding senior female.

Brewer, a philosophy major, earned the John Finley Crowe Citation for Scholarship and General Excellence as the outstanding senior male. He also received a Scholarship-Leadership Award.

Bettler, associate professor of communication, earned the Arthur and Ilene Baynham Outstanding Teaching Award. The honor, established in 1969, is selected through a balloting of currently enrolled students and alumni from the past two graduating classes. To be eligible, a faculty member must be in at least the fourth year of teaching at the College. The winner receives a bronze medallion and a cash prize.

Arriving at Hanover in 2001, Bettler also earned the award in 2008. He teaches rhetorical criticism and theory as they apply to the popular media, especially music, film and television. He earned his bachelor's degree from Oberlin College (Ohio) and both master’s and doctoral degrees from Purdue University.

Aguilar-Monsalve, associate professor of Spanish, earned the Daryl R. Karns Award for Scholarly and Creative Activity. The award, established in 2011, re-named in honor of the biology professor who died in 2011, recognizes sustained scholarly or creative achievement. Faculty members nominate colleagues for the award, which are sent to three judges at liberal arts colleges similar to Hanover. The winner receives a bronze medallion and a cash prize.

Since his coming to Hanover in 2006, the Ecuadorian native has taught Spanish language and literature, with an emphasis on Latin America. He earned a diploma in Spanish literature from Universidad de Salamanca, a bachelor’s from Loyola Marymount University, a master’s from Claremont Graduate School, a master’s and doctorate from University of California (Los Angeles), and a doctorate from California Coast University.
