FLUSHING, NY, May 19, 2009 – Jessica Polish, who graduated last May from Queens College with a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, is the first winner of the Leo J. Walsh Memorial Prize for Excellence in Honors in the Humanities (HTH).  She will begin doctoral work in Philosophy at Vanderbilt University this fall.  This prize honors the memory of QC Professor Walsh who directed HTH for many years.  The prize was established last September with a generous gift from a group of friends from Professor Walsh’s graduate school days at Columbia University.
