It’s not every day that students are selected to vie for a Rhodes scholarship — the oldest and most celebrated international fellowship award in the world. But Nia Cambridge, ’20, did just that — she was named a finalist for not only her academic achievements, but also for her leadership and commitment to the common good.

Nia, whose hometown is Nassau, Bahamas, is studying environmental studies, global studies, and geography, and plans to pursue a career in sustainable development.

“Nia is the embodiment of the academic excellence that is at the core of all we do,” President Crutcher said. “Nia has watched her home country endure devastating hurricanes and additional weather-related obstacles, and she wants to be part of influencing positive change. I am continually impressed by our students’ curiosity in their areas of study and their commitment to leaving the world a better place than they found it.”

Congratulations to Nia for making it to the final round and representing us among such an impressive group of global leaders.
