Macy Skipworth is in her second year of her Master's at Texas Tech University. She has been granted the Helen DeVitt Jones scholarship and the Mary Sue Carlock scholarship. She will graduate with her Master's degree in American Literature in May of 2016, and plans on pursuing her PhD degree in Film and Media Studies the following fall. She teaches freshmen composition classes, and works as a graduate assistant for the Film and Media studies department. Macy's favorite class in the MA program so far has been a course over jazz literature. This spring, she will present a paper over jazz studies at the Popular Culture Association national conference in Seattle, WA. Macy has never been more excited about her future in English studies, and has never been more proud of the education she received from the English department at Lubbock Christian University.
