Three recent Seaver College graduates have joined the elite rank of Fulbright Scholars, one of the most prestigious scholarly awards worldwide. Natalie Forde (’13), Anna Sherod (’13), and Kealy Jaynes (’13) will live out the Fulbright Program’s motto of “Service Above Self” as they prepare to travel all over the globe to embark on a diverse array of experiences as English Teaching Assistants (ETA) and researchers.

Furthermore, Reale Santora (MA ’12), a master of arts in education alumna of the Graduate School of Education and Psychology, has been chosen as an alternate to pursue scholarship in Malta.

Forde will immerse herself in the history, traditions, and language of Germany and plans to research the implementation of holocaust education in German schools as a potential model for improving Holocaust and genocide curriculum in schools worldwide.

Jaynes will fulfill her Fulbright scholarship as an ETA in Turkey, while Sherod will pursue scholarship in Romania.
