The 2016-2017 Columbia College Savory Award was presented to Elizabeth Howe, senior communications studies major, on Nov. 2.

Here is a fun Q&A to help you get to know Howe, who “embodies all four C’s the college represents: courage, commitment, confidence and competence,” Kristin Wilson, junior biochemistry major and SGA president, said.

Q: What’s your favorite color?

A: Purple, of course!

Q: What was your reaction to receiving the Savory award?

A: It has been a very humbling experience, and I was actually quite surprised. It meant a lot to me that my peers thought so much of me.

Q: Have you had any thought about how you will design your doll?

A: Actually, the class president is the one who will dress the doll. I do not really have a say in it. I’m sure she will do a good job though. I am excited for my doll to be next to Margaret (Mendenhall) who is a good friend of mine. She was last year’s recipient.

Q: What are your plans after graduation?

A: I graduate in December–about twenty days not counting weekends, but who’s counting? Anyway, I am excited to see what endeavors life takes me on. I interned over the summer with the J. Marion Foundation in Lancaster, South Carolina, and I will be continuing my internship with them in the spring.

Q: What has been your favorite thing about your time at Columbia College?

A: My favorite thing about Columbia College has to be the friendships and sisterhood that I’ve become a part of. The people here are what make all the difference and will make it so hard to leave.
