Women's Studies Professor Mary Benanti Shines On
Women's Studies Professor, Mary Benanti was a featured monologist in "Shine On: Shining Stars of the Past, Present and Future" on April 8th 2011. The program, which was produced by NMSU Creative Media Institute's Mark Medoff, who is a Tony Award-winning playwright and Oscar-nominated screenwriter, focused on the personal journeys of faculty representatives from each of the 24 departments in the College of Arts and Sciences. In a statement to University Communications, Christa Slaton, Dean of the College of Arts and Science, stated: "Shine On was a celebration of the extraordinary talent and dedication of the faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences. The program featured the personal journeys of faculty throughout the college - how they were inspired by their own professors and mentors in life and how they chose to dedicate themselves to helping New Mexico State University students reach for the stars and achieve their dreams. It was inspiring."
