Jane Hill to Receive the 2009 Franz Boas Award

Congratulations go out to Dr. Jane Hill who recently received a letter from Setha Low, President of AAA, that she will be awarded the 2009 Franz Boas Award for Exemplary Service to Anthropology. It will be awarded at the Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. When Jane notified the Department of the award she said, "I would not be the recipient of this honor without the wonderful support of colleagues and students in our terrific department! And the hard work of former students -- the nomination was honchoed by Andrea Smith, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania. So I want to thank everybody." Jane, we are lucky ones who had the honor of working with you over these many years. We hope you enjoy your retirement and this new award - you've certainly earned it!
