Mariangela Jordan 12C has been selected as the 2012 Lucius Lamar McMullan Award winner. An anthropology major, she came to Emory as a transfer student in fall 2009 after working in a number of jobs, including as owner of an Internet café, a project coordinator for a non-profit organization, a truck driver, and as an office manager.

She completed a thesis on the role of the arts in maintaining the cultural identity of immigrant communities. She is especially drawn to visual ethnography, and hopes to continue to investigate the world through these methods. In addition to her academic achievements, the award recognizes her on-going commitment to service, to building bridges in communities and to ethical engagement.

As the winner of the McMullan Award, she will receive $20,000 at the time of graduation to be used for any purpose of his or her choosing. The McMullan Award is presented at the College Diploma Ceremony of the May 2012 Commencement. The award is made possible by the generous gift of Mr. William Matheson '47G. In instituting this award, Mr. Matheson sought to reward Emory College graduates who show extraordinary promise of becoming our future leaders, and rare potential for service to their community, the nation and the world.
