Anthropology is the study of cultures!
From working in Greece to assisting a school in Malta as a staff member, Hannah
Grace Howard, Vanguard Class of 2012, is an anthropology superstar. Her enthusiasm
for her work and her love of the field is unmatched.
She was awarded the Johnson Scholarship from Washington and Lee University. It is part of the larger Johnson Program in Leadership and Integrity.
She was also awarded the National Merit Award, a Horatio Alger Association State Scholarship, a Special Forces Association Scholarship,
and a Scottish Rite Legacy Scholarship.
Howard graduated summa cum laude with Phi Beta Kappa membership and honors in Sociology and Anthropology.
After working in Greece, Howard enrolled at Boston University to work on her PH.D with plans to serve as a teaching fellow and work through some research projects of her own.
Inspired by her time in Athens, Howard aims to focus her work around the role of religion in Greece and the ways that it affects not only everyday life, but also the political climate. This specifically brings up questions of national identity, gender, and
generational change within the larger fabric of ethnoreligious life.
