This coming academic year, Predrag Cicovacki, professor of philosophy and director of Peace and Conflict Studies at the College, needs to make sure he has a lot of minutes on his cell phone plan. He will be traveling to Banaras University in Varanasi, India, in the fall semester as a Senior Fulbright-Nehru Fellow at the Malaviya Centre for Peace Research. Meanwhile, daughter Vera Grek ’14 will be heading to Spain for a study abroad experience. Eldest daughter, Heidi Grek ’12, is heading to Germany to study and teach after earning a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship. Cicovacki’s youngest daughter, Lydia, will be starting her Holy Cross experience as a member of the Class of 2016, so at least one member of the family (along with his wife), will be holding down the fort here on the Hill. Above, Cicovacki surrounded by his three daughters, from left, Vera, Lydia and Heidi. Read more about this Holy Cross family of scholars in the Summer 2012 issue of Holy Cross Magazine in July.
