Myers Park Graduate Awarded Rhodes Scholarship

Charlotte Observer

A Charlotte native attending UNC Chapel Hill is among 32 American students selected as 2013 Rhodes Scholars and will receive scholarships to Oxford University.

Rachel Myrick, 21, was selected Saturday for the award that pays all expenses for up to four years of study at the university in England. Myrick, a 2009 graduate of Myers Park High School in Charlotte, is majoring in political science and global studies, with a minor in creative writing.

Myrick has attended UNC on a Morehead-Cain Scholarship, a full, four-year scholarship to UNC that also funds four summer enrichment experiences and additional educational opportunities.

Myrick plans to use her Rhodes Scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in international relations, studying the causes and consequences of ethnic conflict in world politics.
