SAINT PAUL, MN - Abby Stocker, of Peterson, Minn., was one of five students representing Bethel University at the recent “Making Literature” conference at Taylor University, in Upland, Ind. Stocker won the Phillip Christopher Schrun Prize for Literary Analysis for her paper “Text as Shaper of Worship: ‘O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing.’” The award was one of just two prizes given at the conference and the only prize awarded for scholarly work. One of the judges for the prize was Hal Bush, a conference keynote speaker and well-known American literature scholar at St. Louis University. “Making Literature” is Taylor University’s biennial literary conference for undergraduates. Students from nine colleges and universities throughout the Midwest attended and presented at the conference.
