Lexy Gray, major in Italian Studies and Psychology, won the Watson national fellowship. She says: ''What I proposed for the Watson project was inspired by what I did over the summer in Rome. It's what I'm doing with my independent study now in the Italian department. The project is looking at how cultural values of family impact criminal justice systems. I will be traveling in Norway, New Zealand, Japan, Israel."
