A manuscript by Xavier Leadership Center director of marketing Jenn Stark has been selected as a finalist by the Romance Writers of America. Maids of Honor is a finalist in the Young Adult Romance category of the 2011 Golden Heart awards which will be announced in June. The award recognizes excellence in unpublished romance fiction manuscripts. The historical novel is set in Tudor England centering around the lives of five teenage spies in Queen Elizabeth’s court. Over 1,000 manuscripts were judged by fellow authors in 10 categories and narrowed to approximately 70 finalists. Stark, of West Chester, has sold the first two books in a five-book Maids of Honor series to Simon & Schuster. The first is expected to come out in fall, 2012.

On March 23, Jonathan Gibson, art professor at Xavier, was honored by the Electronic Document Systems Foundation at their Industry Leaders Reception, with the EDSF Capstone Excellence in Education Award. The Award honors an international academic institution for its educational and innovative efforts relating to the document management and graphic communications industry. Gibson focuses on small class sizes, group learning environments, foundational skills and the importance of a liberal arts education for artists. Students who advance from this course are well rounded and are able to draw upon a diverse intellectual background to generate unique visual solutions. Gibson currently teaches Graphic Design, Photography, and 2D Design at Xavier, with a research focus in Web Design. He received his BFA from Brigham Young University and his MFA in Painting from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. He started his own ceramics and photography businesses. He believes that creative cross-training is critical to becoming a successful artist, designer and individual. Community-engaged service drives his scholarly interests and teaching.
