Dr. Joseph Ceccio
Our long-time very generous patron of Shakespeare in the Spring, Mrs. Cathryn Carroll Taliaferro, passed away in May 2005. An endowment from her will allow us to continue the Annual Shakespeare Essay Prize Contest.
However, the English Department's Annual Shakespeare in the Spring festival can continue only if one or more sponsors from the community will soon step forward to fund this important, sure-to-be-missed, popular Shakespeare event.
If you would like to help ensure that the annual Shakespeare in the Spring festival continues in 2011 and beyond, please contact the festival chair, Dr. Joseph Ceccio at The University of Akron's English Department. (330-972-7603); email: email@example.com
