Timothy Crowell '20GREENSBORO, N.C. – A member of Greensboro College’s Class of 2020 has won $1,000 toward graduate studies in a competition sponsored by the national interdisciplinary honor society Alpha Chi.

Timothy Samuel Crowell, a psychology and English & Communication Studies major and Humanities minor from Pinnacle, N.C., won in Alpha Chi’s Region III, which includes chapters in the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

Crowell was honored for his senior Honors thesis, “Hollywood Therapy: The Portrayal of Mental Health Professionals in American Film from 2010 to 2017.”

Alpha Chi, founded in 1922, is open to seniors who rank in the top 10 percent of their class and juniors who rank in the top 5 percent of their class.
