Springfield, Ohio – Coming to you virtually this year, Wittenberg University opened the eighth annual Liberal Arts in Action: A Celebration of Learning on Tuesday, May 5.
Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, this year’s rendition featured videos of students giving panel presentations or TED Talks, PowerPoint presentations, pictures of art from the senior art thesis project (coming soon), and recorded dances on the University’s website.
“Students participating in the Celebration of Learning are supported by their departments as they showcase their work. They represent the very best that Wittenberg has to offer,” said Cherie Rebar, professor of nursing and co-chair of the event along with Maria Bashaw, director of nursing. “We congratulate them and want to pass on our thanks for their hard work and participation in the program. We extend gratitude to Vanessa Orduna Zarazua and Cameron Dobrotka for their contributions in making this an exceptional day for the Wittenberg Community. Special thanks to Ryan Maurer for technical support, and to Linda Beals for helping us circulate the word about the event to local high schools!
“This is an event dedicated to celebrating student achievement. We have more than 125 unique students represented overall during this virtual event,” Rebar said. “This is a different way of sharing the accomplishments of the students, and we are glad they have a virtual venue since we could not be on campus.”
