Twenty-six students are set to graduate from Edina High School as Rotary Global Scholars.
The Rotary Global Scholars program, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Edina and the Edina Education Fund, was designed to help students develop global competency skills, prepare for a global career, develop understanding of world issues and learn to apply academic content to solve social and global issues.
To be a Rotary Global Scholar, a student must take coursework above and beyond graduation requirements, reach the highest level of a world language or already be fluent in a language other than English, be involved in activities of the Rotary Club of Edina, collaborate globally through travel or virtual experiences and complete a capstone course.
2021 was the first year of the program, with seven students earning the Rotary Global Scholar designation. Twenty-three graduated in 2022.
This year’s graduating Rotary Global Scholars are Emma Brenner, Joely Emerson, Logan Fiol, Shayaan Ghandi, Alper Guvenen, Alanna Halloran, Elizabeth Halloran, Abid Hasan, Parker Hughes, Yeshe Jangchup, Elodie Jones, Greta Kerekes, Anand Khariwala, Khai, Jed Koo, Ingrid Koehler, Emily Leung, Naima Mohamed, Camille Morton, Eliza Neumann, Emma Rapallini, Ananya Sri Sarangalwar, Jacob Tietz, Rowan Ungerman, Evelyn Yang, Lauren Zawoyski and Natasha Zettler.
