This is Emily Bowie, a Murphy Scholar of the Class of 2020 with a knack for language and for understanding the people and cultures around her! She majored in Spanish and Anthropology, graduating magna cum laude with distinction in both areas as well as distinction in Odyssey. She received the Quiet Leader Award and the Ferris C. Baker Sociology Award, and was named to Phi Beta Kappa. Emily studied in Spain through the Hendrix in Madrid program and did intensive studies of Murphy Visiting Writers Trenton Lee Stewart, Nickole Brown, and Jessica Jacobs. Here's to you, Emily—may your love for literature and language carry you far!
