Katie Clark in the Times-Picayune

Katie is a graduating senior in our Honors Program, has four (4!) majors, and has won the Beinecke and the Marshall Scholarships. She will be attending Oxford (England, not MS) next year. Needless to say, we are very proud of Katie. As Dean Jean, my predecessor is quoted in the article, we are most proud of the fact that Katie always has been, and I am sure always will be, "Katie."

Is there anything that Katie Clark cannot do, and do exceptionally well?

More than a few people are asking that question these days about a Tulane University senior who has become a bona fide star at one of the nation's top 50 research universities.

"She has wings that sprout from her back," said Chris Brady, a classical and Jewish studies professor who directs a Tulane honors program. "She's a figment of our imagination."

Clark, 21, who is shy about her accomplishments, has a 3.94 grade point average on a 4.0 scale. Always one to seek out demanding classes -- she spent most of one summer in an intensive Latin program at the University of Toronto -- Clark will graduate in May with credits qualifying her in not one, but four, majors: history, medieval studies, Latin and French.
