English alumnae receive 40 Under 40 honors
The 2018 “40 under 40” Honors (http://www.ecu.edu/sadevelopment/40under40/) were announced recently, and at least two of the honorees represent English! (There may be others with English connections as well, but these are the two we know of.)
Karen Turnage Boyd (https://www.linkedin.com/in/karen-turnage-boyd-5667a11b/) earned her BA in English in 2002 and now practices law and directs the new Sullivan County Family Justice Center in Tennessee.
Bridget Todd (https://www.linkedin.com/in/bridget-todd-40250044/) is a writer and leader in Washington, DC; she was among the panelists at last year’s “Arts and Sciences: Beyond Your Degree” event. Bridget earned her BA degree in English in 2007. As an outreach manager at Medium.com, Bridget works to amplify the writing and impact of political activists. Before joining Medium.com, Bridget worked on the digital team at MSNBC, taught writing at Howard University, and organized digital training for progressive organizers with the New Organizing Institute.
It is great to see our young alumnae recognized. Go English!
