Twenty-five Livingston College students were honored from 1987 to 2010 with the Lynne M. Kellermann Memorial Award, “presented annually to an outstanding senior in the four-year college honors program of Livingston College, Rutgers University,” as listed below.
There were two honorees each in 1991, 1992, and 1997. No honorees were listed for 1990 or 1994.
Kellermann held three degrees from Rutgers: a bachelor’s degree (University College-New Brunswick, 1975), and master’s and doctorate degrees from the Graduate School of Education (1978 and 1985).
From the 2007 Livingston College Commencement Convocation program: Lynne M. Kellermann began her career at Livingston College as a secretary and earned her B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in English at Rutgers University while working in various capacities. She taught in the writing program at Livingston and eventually became director of the college’s Honors program, a position she held until her untimely death in 1986. Lynne was intensely interested in students and had a wonderful sense of humor; everywhere she went on campus, students followed. This award is presented to the Honors Program senior who best exemplifies her warmth, indomitable spirit, and exceptional dedication to the program.
