Director of Disability Support Services and Assistant Professor Jack Trammell, Ph.D.
Professor Jack Trammell, Ph.D., has won the Virginia Writer’s Club award for non-fiction.
Trammell’s “Reflections of a Southern Gentleman Farmer” is a collection of vignettes
about life with his wife and children on his small farm in Louisa County. “These
stories are the fabric of my life,” says Trammell.
The Virginia Writer’s Club (VWC) is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious organization
of its kind. The Club sponsors yearly awards for Virginia writers, and each award
includes a certificate and a cash prize. The VWC award represents the best of the
best; “Reflections” first received regional recognition before being lauded with
the esteemed statewide award.
In 2006 Trammell won the VWC award for poetry. “I am really surprised and pleased
by both of these successes. These are particularly meaningful to me,” he says.
Trammell, who has been at Randolph-Macon since 2000, is the director of disability
support services and an assistant professor.
