| Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Junior Becca Blais was awarded the Truman Scholarship, an award given to college juniors with plans to attend graduate school who then work to make a difference through public service, according to a press release from the Truman Scholarship Foundation. 

Blais, who currently serves as student body president, is a political science and peace studies major, originally from New Smyrna Beach, Florida.  

“I’m incredibly honored to be named a Truman Scholar,” Blais said in an email. “I am excited for all of the opportunities in store ahead, and I have a tremendous amount of gratitude for everyone who has supported me in this process.”

The 62 new Truman Scholars were selected from among 768 candidates, according to the release.
