Senior Ann-Marie Elvin, a member of the Princeton women's hockey team has been awarded the Moses Taylor Pyne Honor Prize, the highest distinction that can be given to an undergraduate at Princeton.

A native of West Roxbury, Mass., Elvin played forward for the Tigers and was a three-time member of the ECAC Hockey All-Academic Team. Her hockey career was ended prematurely due to multiple concussions. She remains involved with the women's hockey team.

"I feel incredibly blessed to be selected as a co-recipient of the M. Taylor Pyne Prize," Elvin said. "The honor is, in equal parts, exciting, overwhelming and deeply humbling, as it is a far greater testament to those I have worked alongside than to any accomplishments I have enjoyed."

A winner of the Shapiro Prize for Academic Excellence, Elvin is the former security chair for Tower Club and serves as a peer adviser in Forbes College. She is also a member of several religious groups on campus and is a member of Princeton Disabilities Awareness.


A sociology major, Elvin will graduate in the spring and will pursue a master's degree in criminology theory at Cambridge and then attend law school back in the U.S. It is only fitting that Elvin's senior thesis was on the artistic expression of prison inmates and how creative expression can help them reintegrate into society.

The Pyne Prize was established in 1921 and is given annually to the senior who exemplifies qualities of academic excellence, leadership and strength of character.
