We heard a few days ago from Dr. Joe Creech, Director of the Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts that our own Sam Hahn, Samford Class of ’16, has been named a member of the ninth cohort of Lilly Fellows, a distinguished program for graduate students.  He follows Nathan Smolin, named last year to the eighth cohort.  Dr. Joel Davis of our School of the Arts was our first Lilly Fellow, several years ago.  Sam follows within a long Samford tradition of producing graduates with a unique blend of heart, soul, and mind.  

 The world is better because of Sam Hahn and the members of the Samford faculty who helped to nurture his soul and sharpen his mind.
