Among additional past winners are: Spencer Lameka ’12 of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Michael Cacciotti ’13 of Manhattan, Kansas; Sam Carbajal ’13 of El Paso, Texas; Jena Roscizewski Cluka ’13 of Racine, Wisconsin; Kevin Carli ’14 of River Grove, Illinois; Amanda Detlor ’14 of Hancock, Wisconsin; Holly Kortemeier ’15 of Stoughton, Wisconsin; Kyle Novack ’15 of Two Rivers, Wisconsin; and Patrick Hoffman ’18 of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin.
“Camrie’s accomplishment, along those of the College’s past paper competition winners, represents the stellar work accomplished by students in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology,” Clark says.
Schmitz majored in sociology and anthropology.
