Story posted May 15, 1999

May 13, 1999, BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Enrique Yepes, assistant professor of Romance languages, has been awarded this year's Sydney B. Karofsky Prize.

The prize was established by members of the Karofsky family, including Peter S. Karofsky '62, Paul I. Karofsky '66 and David M. Karofsky '93. It is conferred to honor distinction in teaching by untenured members of the faculty.

The prize is awarded annually to a teacher who "best demonstrates the ability to impart knowledge, inspire enthusiasm and stimulate intellectual curiosity."

It is awarded on the basis of student evaluations of teaching. Yepes earned a bachelor's degree from the University Pontificia Bolivariana, in Columbia, and a doctorate in Spanish-American literature from Rutgers University. He has served on various Bowdoin committees and served as an academic advisor and faculty liaison for student organizations.
