Donna Sadler, professor of art, was named the Joseph R. Gladden Jr. Lecturer for 2013-2014. The award is given annually to a faculty member whose scholarly activities are especially noteworthy. The award honors Joseph Gladden, who served as chair of the Agnes Scott Board of Trustees for 10 years before stepping down in 2002.
Gladden Award recipients are asked to give a public lecture to the Agnes Scott community on a topic related to her or his scholarly work. A stipend and release from teaching one course during the semester in which the lecture is scheduled assists the lecturer in creating the presentation.
