The English Department is proud to recognize Ya-Chi (Christie) Lee (Biology/English combined BS ’22) as CSSH’s winner of the annual Northeastern Compass Award. The Compass Awards Program recognizes exemplary students from the senior class who, during their time on campus, have demonstrated a true dedication to a core set of values: leadership, volunteerism, academic integrity, and commitment to Northeastern. Students who display strength in these values demonstrate that they are on a path to alumni leadership.

In the award announcement, Professor of English Beth Britt noted Christie’s top academic performance in two of her courses, including Rhetoric of Law. “Christie impressed me with her fearlessness in wrestling with complex ideas and her commitment to social justice. Her proposal for her final project, and the final project itself, far exceeded what most students are able to accomplish in this course, especially when they do not have a background in rhetoric, which Christie did not.”

Christie plans to attend law school at New York University to focus on health and racial justice. Please join us in congratulating Christie on this achievement!
