Brittain Award winner

May 2, 2013

Emory University senior Katie Dickerson is this year's recipient of Emory's highest student honor, the Marion Luther Brittain Award, which honors service to Emory and the greater community without expectation of recognition. The award comes with $5,000 -- no strings attached -- which she is donating to Appalachian Service Project.

During four very full years at Emory, Dickerson played on the basketball and lacrosse teams and was involved in an astounding number of campus organizations. She recently was awarded the Bobby Jones Scholarship and will spend a year studying at University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
