Herckis receives Fulbright Award
Lauren R. Herckis, lecturer in anthropology at Penn State Beaver, has received a Fulbright award from the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. Herckis, who will conduct archaeological research as partial completion of a doctorate in anthropology, will examine cultural diversity in an ancient Mayan urban center by leading a dig in the lowlands of Chiapas, a state in southern Mexico near Palenque. The project will require her to spend at least nine months in Mexico. She is currently in Mexico to finalize all project details.
