The Frederick A. Meier Book Award 2018: Javier Rodríguez-Díaz

Michele C. Dávila

As part of the Ed Francis Endowment that the Department of World Languages and Cultures received in 2013, we are implementing the Frederick A. Meier Book Award in recognition for outstanding achievement of one of our majors.

The inaugural conferment of this annual award will be celebrated on May 15, 2018 at the Hawthorne Hotel at 5:00 pm. The department’s full-time faculty unanimously selected Javier Rodríguez-Díaz as the first awardee.

As an Italian major, Mr. Rodríguez-Díaz has demonstrated to be an outstanding student not only academically but also in service to the community, as a leader in student clubs, and as an advocate for diversity and inclusion in our university. Therefore, Javier perfectly meets the award’s criteria.

The Frederick A. Meier Book Award goes to a student that:

  • Is a senior at Salem State University and a major in the Department of World Languages and Cultures
  • Displays distinctive leadership in the discipline, such as in university student organizations and student government activities
  • Achieves academic excellence
  • Exhibits meritorious service to the discipline, such as in campus and community service
  • Is committed to increasing awareness of cultural diversity and promotes respect for difference and inclusivity on campus

Please join us in congratulating Javier, the recipient of the Frederick A. Meier Book Award 2018!
