Winner: Four Rhodes Scholars

This year four Brown students were awarded the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship given to only 32 undergraduates for “outstanding intellect, character, leadership, and commitment to service.” We heartily congratulate Brianna Doherty ’12, Nabeel Gillani ’12, David Poritz ’12 and Emma LeBlanc ’11 for their exceptional accomplishments. We hope each of them will pursue advanced studies at Oxford University in Brown’s spirit of “usefulness and reputation.” While each of the recipients has brought Brown positive publicity, the increased prestige handed to Brown should not be regarded as the significant message of the news. Instead, the recipients have demonstrated the potential of the individual to achieve. Their accomplishments give a good name to talent and hard work.
