Reed Locke (Battle Ground Academy), Betsnat Mengesha (Overton High School, MNPS), and Nora Ryan (Hume Fogg Magnet, MNPS) were recognized for completion of the Global Scholar program,
Not able to be present were Tennessee Global Scholars Elma Jashim (MLK Magnet, MNPS), Christine Li (Hume Fogg Magnet, MNPS), and Pratik Yedla (Randolph School, Huntsville, AL).
The awards were presented at the opening of the April 24th World Affairs Council Town Hall, “What’s Going On in the U.S. State Department?,” featuring career diplomats Bowers and Schlicher.
These six students achieved the Tennessee Global Scholar award for the 2017-2018 school year by accumulating over 100 points each for increasing their global literacy and participating in a variety of international-related activities such the World Affairs Council Academic WorldQuest competition, completion of WAC “What in the World?” Weekly Quizzes, participation in town halls and seminars, Sister Cities of Nashville programs, Model United Nations competitions and other global affairs awareness activities that they document throughout the year.
