BIOGRAPHIES Ferid Murad Medal Finalists 2016 Megan Bailey Megan Bailey is a political science major from Columbus, Indiana. She is a Rector Scholar, Honor Scholar, and member of Phi Beta Kappa and Pi Sigma Alpha. Megan’s first research opportunity came after her sophomore year when she interned at the Sagamore Institute, a non-partisan think tank in Indianapolis. She worked on many research projects, the most notable being “Mapping Ohio’s Compassion,” a commissioned project for the Governor’s Office of Ohio where she analyzed data relating to Ohio’s non-profits to determine their reach and efficacy. The results of this research were presented to the Governor’s Office and published online. During the fall of her junior year, Megan studied international studies and multilateral diplomacy in Geneva, Switzerland. Her final paper in Geneva examined the strategic relationship between Israel and Russia and its implications for U.S. security was published by the School for International Training. In summer 2015, Megan interned at Exodus Refugee Immigration where she navigated the difficulties of refugee resettlement and helped formalize a program to connect refugee women with WIC and other programs to ease the transition to America. This year, Megan completed a political science thesis examining securitization theory and its applications for the current refugee crisis in the European Union, and her Honor Scholar thesis examines women’s roles in conflict using the Democratic Republic of Congo as a case study. Megan intends to publish both of these papers. Most recently, Megan was honored with the Stephen Charles Sellett Memorial Award for outstanding seniors in political science. Post graduation, Megan will work in Indianapolis at KSM Consulting as part of the Orr Fellowship. After the fellowship, she intends to pursue a Masters degree in international security.

Sydney E. Cason

Sydney Cason is a neuroscience major and Honor Scholar from West Lafayette, IN. After spending her first year in the School of Music and performing lead roles in two operas, Sydney created an independent major in neuroscience, combining coursework in psychology, biology, chemistry, and computer science. She has led multiple neuroscience educational outreach endeavors, including co-founding Neuroscience Education and Research at DePauw (NERD), creating and playing The Neuron Games in an after-school science program, and giving a public lecture at the Putnam County Public Library on Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, Sydney co-founded and recorded a science podcast series with the award-winning publication Glasgow Insight into Science and Technology while studying abroad in Glasgow, Scotland. She is a 2015 initiate of Phi Beta Kappa, a Peer Mentor in the Mentor Program, and has served as a teaching assistant. She joined her first research lab as a first-year student and has been working in two collaborating labs at Purdue University for the last two years. At Purdue, Sydney has worked on two major research projects being prepared for publication in peer-reviewed journals. She received grants from the biology and psychology departments for her research and has presented her work at two conferences. Her Honor Scholar thesis comprises original research addressing age-related hearing loss, and her major thesis reviews recent research on Alzheimer’s disease for a general audience. In 2013 and 2014 respectively, Sydney was awarded the Meghan Parker Memorial Prize for the outstanding first-year vocalist and the Condit Science Scholarship for the promising sophomore or junior in psychology. Sydney is one of the 2,000 individuals nationwide selected for the competitive National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. She plans to attend the University of Pennsylvania and hopes to eventually pursue a career in academia focusing on the aging brain and neurodegenerative diseases.

Sheridan Schulte Sheridan Schulte is a biochemistry and history double major with minors in French and European studies from Houston, Texas. Ultimately, Sheridan intends to pursue a career in medicine, but DePauw’s liberal arts education has given her the opportunity to develop a broader understanding of world cultures, languages, and global health. She served as president of Timmy Global Health during her junior and senior years, raising campus awareness about health disparities, hosting public health speakers and fundraising events, and organizing medical service trips to Ecuador and the Dominican Republic. She also put her interest in public health and medicine to use in a research setting at DePauw, where she worked with Dr. Sharon Crary in the biochemistry department to create a diagnostic test for the neglected tropical disease, leishmaniasis. At M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center, she examined different imaging modalities’ ability to earlier detect pancreatic cancer. As a history major, Sheridan has performed extensive historical research. While studying abroad in Paris, Sheridan earned a scholarship to complete a thesis on the French Resistance movement during World War II. Her senior history thesis on the role and treatment of twentieth century American female physicians explores what it was like to be a female physician at a time when the level of women in medicine hovered at just five percent. Sheridan has been the recipient of multiple awards and scholarships, including the William Wallace Carson History Scholarship, Charles E. & Agnes Shawen Merit Scholarship for pre-medical students, and the Morehead Givens Western European Art History Scholarship. She is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Order of Omega, and Phi Alpha Theta honor societies. Next year, Sheridan will begin her Masters of Public Health at the University of Texas with a concentration in Maternal and Child Health; she then plans to attend medical school. Her goal is to become an obstetrician and gynecologist and use her public health background working for a global health nonprofit organization that focuses on women’s health and empowerment.



The Walker Cup is awarded each year to the graduating senior who has done the most for DePauw University during his or her college career. The prize was established in 1926 by a gift from Guy Morrison Walker, Class of 1890, a successful businessman and presidential advisor. Traditionally, the Walker Cup recipient speaks at commencement.

BIOGRAPHIES Walker Cup Finalists 2016 Kevin Bugielski

Kevin Bugielski, Holton Memorial Scholar, is an English writing major and Education Studies minor from Oak Park, Illinois. Having benefited greatly from the First-Year Experience Program, he served as a Mentor during his sophomore year, and was promoted to Peer Mentor Program Specialist his junior and senior years. Kevin was named a Men’s Hall Achievement Scholar for his significant contributions to campus, particularly in promoting equality with regard to race, religion, sexual orientation, and economic or social status. After coming to terms with his own identity and publicly joining the LGBTQ community on campus, Kevin released a large-scale campaign titled DePauw Human Rights, where he created a space for students, faculty, and staff to share their voices and engage in conversations regarding race, sexual orientation, feminism, and nationwide happenings. Through his diligent work, he was asked to join the planning committee for DePauw’s first-ever DePauw Dialogue, where he most recently served on the subcommittee for DePauw Dialogue 2.0. While on campus, Kevin served as a Presidential Ambassador, a Senior Intern for the Office of Admission, and was the Director of Public Relations for DePauw Student Government. In addition, for four years, he volunteered with College Mentors for Kids and has been dedicated to singing with DePauwCappella and serving with Civic Fellows. He founded the Student Philanthropy Council, the GOLD Alumni Speaker Series, and recently helped launch Green Dot, an organization designed to eliminate sexual assault on college campuses. Kevin is a proud member of Order of Omega National Greek Honor Society where he represents his fraternity, Sigma Chi. Upon graduation, he will be moving to New York City to join The Gotham Group, a marketing agency where he will serve as Creative Brand Strategist. Kevin is extremely humbled by the unforgettable experiences and relationships that he was fortunate enough to have during his time on campus.

Craig Carter

Craig Carter is a first generation college student from Chicago’s south side who is majoring in Biology. Craig began his DePauw experience on the football field, where he learned the importance of trust, community, and leadership. In his sophomore year Craig became the president of Men of Excellence and served as a First-Year Resident Assistant. As a Resident Assistant, Craig came to understand the importance not only of community, but also of appreciating the differences of those inside the community. In his junior year, Craig was elected Vice President of Community Relations for DePauw Student Government. During his term, Craig aided in the revitalization of the Association of African American Students’ mentorship program for Greencastle youth and DePauw students. As Student Body President during his senior year, Craig’s commitment to student life at DePauw led him to advocate for diversity and equity. During his term as president, Craig made the reassessment and evaluation of the student meal plan a top priority in order to better meet students’ needs. Following the events of September 23rd, Craig coauthored a list of nine student demands to be given to the board of trustees, of which seven were met, including the creation of an independent review committee, a commitment to remodeling key cultural spaces, better campus lighting, and updated training protocols for public safety. Craig’s organizing of the second DePauw Dialogue is the culmination of his years of service, his commitment to cross-cultural discussion, and a deep abiding love for the DePauw community. As a personal motto Craig has chosen “Born of rich values, it is my duty to serve and positively impact every community in which I enter, to persevere when I am weak, and lead when I am strong.” After DePauw, Craig hopes to pursue a PhD in Biology and one day become a president of a small liberal arts college like DePauw.

Katharine Kondry

Katie Kondry is an Economics major and a Political Science and Philosophy double minor from Naperville, IL. A first generation college student, Katie came to DePauw hoping to better establish her personal identity. Discouraged by a campus culture that seemed to prize the voices of some over others, Katie made it a priority to get involved. As a Sophomore Senator, Katie pushed for changes in first-year programming and campus dining. Her actions resulted in the creation of the Intercultural Community Conversation Facilitator (ICCF) program and sustainable to-go containers. She quickly learned the importance of student activism, recognizing that tangible results could be achieved through a combination of critical thinking and hard work. Looking to learn more about multiculturalism and facilitation, she served as a Status Quo and ICCF Facilitator, exploring concepts of identity, power, and privilege with her peers. Katie is most proud

of her work as the DePauw Student Government Vice President of Academic Affairs, where she served as a student representative on CAPP, first advocating for the M Requirement, and later helping to write and implement the curricular changes. Initially met with much opposition, Katie continued to push for the requirement, believing that curricular changes were only one of many pieces necessary to help build community and understanding across campus. It was the desire to continue community building that compelled Katie to run for Student Body Vice President. She wanted to ensure that the work started by the student activists was continued. As vice president, she has continued working to address student concerns: she created an Intercultural Life committee, increased student funding for organizations, and called for improvements to campus housing. Upon graduation, Katie is excited to join BMO Harris Bank as a Commercial Analyst in Chicago. Katie is incredibly grateful for the relationships she established with peers, staff, and faculty members during her time at DePauw, and is looking forward to future opportunities to give back.

Please join us in the Great Hall for a reception and refreshments immediately following the convocation.
