The Aristeia Award, now in its ninth year, was created to honor those who have provided exceptional service to the School and who have done the most over the years to support the ASCSA’s mission in teaching, research, archaeological exploration, and/or publication. In Nancy A. Winter, we are fortunate to have someone who has published extensively on architectural terracottas and excavated in Greece, Cyprus, and Italy, and who has tirelessly served the School and its members for decades, especially in her role as Head Librarian. Every alumnus’ and alumna’s life has been touched in one way or another by Nancy’s hard work as the initiator of the ARGOS project, which eventually led to the electronic cataloguing of the numerous resources of the libraries and archives. She has long been a part of the heart and soul of the School, and richly deserves this recognition.

Nancy Winter will be presented with the Aristeia Award at the next meeting of the Alumni/ae Association, to be held at the AIA/SCS convention in San Diego. The Alumni/ae reception and meeting have been scheduled for Friday January 4th at the Marriott Marquis Grand Ballroom F from 8- 10:30pm.
