LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A Northeastern University senior from Lexington, Kentucky, is among 32 American men and women chosen as Rhodes Scholars and will pursue post-graduate studies at Oxford University.

Logan C. Jackson is the university’s first Rhodes Scholar. She is president of the Northeastern chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, and a violist in her university’s symphony orchestra.

Jackson has also been a leader in community services relating to local refugees in Kentucky, low-income housing and employment, tutoring and mentoring.

While at the prestigious university in England, she will do the M.Sc. in Evidence-based Social Intervention and Policy, and the M.Sc. in Education.

The winners were chosen from 869 applicants who were endorsed by 316 colleges and universities. The scholarships cover all expenses for two or three years of study at Oxford University starting next October.
