ANNOUNCING THE WINNER OF THE 2023 CLAMBAKE SOCIETY SCHOLARSHIP, IT’S SHI QI TANG, AS MENTIONED ABOVE
Her application was a delight from start to finish, from the printout of our questions, through the interesting mistake section, to the time travel section… Should we spoil what kinds of answers we’re looking for? Guess so? But yeah, not the personal details. So suffice to say, it was a heartfelt, serious and thoughtful, but still lighthearted discussion of family and the passage of time and the changes in our selves, our families, and societies. Interesting, wise, and optimistic. Shi Qi is headed to UW-Madison in the fall, where we’re sure she’ll do great things.
As we’ve thought many times over the past several years, it’s a shame we couldn’t meet our winner or any of the other finalists. We love hearing from all of you and getting this little window into your lives, and we’re excited to see where life takes all of you. However little it may be in years like this, we appreciate being some small part of your lives, and remaining in touch with the community. We can’t go back and erase all our failings-to-appear-in-person-in-Rhinelander, but we will be there again, soon. (too lazy to do this now, but imagine a countdown timer here, to the date when our teaser post will appear)
