    Maya Lin

    In the given sentence:

    To the surprise of many,it was a college student Maya Lin who won the 1981 competition to design the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

    Should "Maya Lin" be surrounded by commas or not.

    Re: Restrictive Clause

    Yes, there should be commas before and after "Maya Lin". (Space after a comma.)

    I'd use them, but don't feel strongly either way.
