Recent student and faculty recognition

We all know how terrific and talented our students, faculty and staff are, but it's always gratifying when the rest of the world agrees. Read it and applaud.

 
Music senior Latasia Hopkins, half of LNJAY with her cousin Jasharee Parker, shows up in this week’s City Pages with LNJAY’s video, “We All That” as one of “This Week’s 5 Must-See Videos.” City Pages suggest the duo is “due for a coming-out party and ‘We All That’ is the song to soundtrack that party.” They are called out as having “confidence that exceeds their age.”  Watch the video here. Way to go, Latasia!
Sherill Zheng, senior in visual arts, has been named a National Young Arts Merit winner. As a merit winner, she will be able to attend a regional event in Los Angeles, Miami or New York City.
Renee Roth, senior in media, received a National Young Arts photography honorable mention 
Young Arts received more than 12,000 applications this year from which only 819 winner were selected across visual, literary, design and performing arts. Congratulations, Sherill and Renee!
Works by Perpich printmaking instructor Jeremy Lundquist are included in "Prints on Ice: The 28th Cooperative Exhibition" at Highpoint Center for Printmaking. (Plus 2015 visual arts alum Calvin Hafermann also has work in the show!) Lundquist's work also is currently featured in a group show at the Providence College Galleries in Rhode Island. Congrats, Jeremy!
English instructor and poet Sun Yung Shin had a poem featured on the Academy of American Poets' Poem-a-Day feature on Monday! You can read it here. She is also featured in an excellent interview in the Twin Cities Daily Planet. Very cool, Sun Yung!
