Howard Univer­sity se­nior, Stacey Ro­he­man, has been se­lected as a 2016 Rhodes Schol­ar­ship fi­nal­ist. Ro­he­man, a Le­gal Com­mu­ni­ca­tions ma­jor from Saint Lucia, is a stu­dent-ath­lete on the Univer­sity’s ten­nis team with a 3.9 GPA.

Ro­he­man is a can­di­date for the Com­mon­wealth Caribbean Rhodes Schol­ar­ship.

Rhodes Schol­ar­ship re­cip­i­ents will be an­nounced by the Rhodes Trust in De­cem­ber.

“Ms. Ro­he­man’s achieve­ments are the cul­mi­na­tion of a per­sonal com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence and a self­less re­solve to ap­ply her tal­ents to make pos­i­tive changes to ben­e­fit oth­ers,” said Dr. Wayne A. I. Fred­er­ick, pres­i­dent of Howard Univer­sity. “The Howard Com­mu­nity ap­plauds her achieve­ments and wishes her well as she con­tin­ues to de­velop as a com­mu­nity leader.”
