Congratulations to Kristie Champlin and Nick Wellkamp! These two BSPP seniors were selected as finalists for the 2009 Rhodes Scholarships. Only 200 students nationwide were invited to interview this weekend for this prestigious award, and we’re proud that two BSPP students were among them. (Brandon Kearse, a former ME undergraduate now in Tech’s masters in city planning, and whom we’ve seen in several public policy courses, was Tech’s third Rhodes finalist this year.)
Although they weren’t among the 32 students from the US who were selected this weekend, we’re happy to be associated with these three students whose hard work and outstanding character were recognized. They might not be headed to Oxford this year, but we know great things are coming to all three!!
