Seton Hill University has selected Claudia Kovach, a professor at Neumann since 1980, to receive its 2013 Distinguished Alumna Leadership Award. Kovach is a professor of English and French.
In a letter announcing the award, Seton Hill President JoAnne Boyle wrote that Kovach had been selected “for your outstanding achievements, contributions to your profession, service to your community, and commitment to the university.”
Responding to news of her selection, Kovach said, “I’m touched and thrilled to receive this honor. Seton Hill had a profound effect on me. Believing in the school motto, ‘Hazard Yet Forward,’ has made me a more persistent person.”
Kovach holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in comparative literature, both from Purdue University.
She is a former Dean of the Division of Arts and Sciences at Neumann and has written numerous articles on literature of the Medieval Period and the works of novelist Isabel Allende.
