MCNAIR ALUMNUS WINS RHODES SCHOLARSHIP
We are thrilled to announce that Cameron Clarke, Howard University class of 2017 and McNair Academic class of 2013, has just been selected to receive the prestigious 2017 Rhodes Scholarship, which provides all expenses for two or three years of study at the University of Oxford in England. Clarke was one of only 32 students nationwide out of 2500 applicants to receive this incredibly competitive award.
A double major community health education and biology, Clarke is already author of six academic publications and lead author on five, and a certified EMT. As co-president of Howard’s chapter of the Peer Health Exchange, he has worked tirelessly both at Howard and in local public and charter schools as a health educator and peer leader. He is also a news editor of The Hilltop, Howard’s student newspaper, and a current Congressional intern with the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. At Oxford, he plans to study Primary Health Care, and afterwards, attend medical school, then work in public health policy and conduct clinical research. AT McNair, Clarke was not only an excellent student and a member of the National Honor Society, but also an athlete and leader in the school community. He served as vice-president of his class, president of the drama club, and a valued member of the varsity tennis team. He also was a state runner-up in the Poetry Out Loud competition. Jersey City Public Schools and McNair Academic are extremely proud of his accomplishments.
