Undergraduate student Savannah Sisk has been awarded the 2013 Eita Krom Undergraduate Writing Prize for her paper "It was a Moral Battle in Me" which she wrote for the SOC 499 class in Winter 2013.
Eita Krom, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Barney Krom from Iron River, Michigan, earned a B.A. in sociology at the University of Michigan in May 1923. On August 17, 1923, she and three of her friends were involved in a fatal auto-train collision. To honor Eita’s memory, her family endowed the Eita Krom Prize, annually awarded by the department for the best paper on a sociological topic written by an LSA junior or senior.
